FCC Clears Small AT&T Spectrum Purchases
Feb 16, 2012, 4:46 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The Federal Communications Commission today approved AT&T's request to acquire 700MHz spectrum licenses in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The New Jersey spectrum is owned by BTA Ventures, and is a sliver of lower 700MHz B Block covering portions of the New Jersey shoreline. The FCC also said that AT&T can acquire several 700MHz licenses covering six markets in Pennsylvania from D&E Investments, which is owned by Windstream Corporation. The FCC denied the Rural Cellular Association and Rural Telecommunications Groups' requests to deny the acquisitions, stating that it believes the reassignment of the spectrum licenses won't cause any competitive harms to the public. AT&T said the acquisitions will allow it to increase its system capacity, enhance existing services, better accommodate its overall growth, and make room for future products and services.
