The small amount of 800 MHz which btw is still having issues along the Mexico border is not worth the headache. Divesting the 800 MHz spectrum is a small price to pay to make the appearance that Dish has enough low band spectrum to compete as a wireless carrier. The 600 MHz and 700 MHz spectrum are enough. Tmobile plans to even lease some of Dish's 600 MHz spectrum to help create 20x20 5G carriers for markets that only have 15x15 or 10x10 carriers.
I know the FCC Auction 103 is coming up to auction off the 37 GHz, 39 GHz and 47 GHz spectrum assets. Does anyone know any details as to how much spectrum will be available for auction in each band?
I see on the FCC website that it has a date of December 10th but I don't know if that date is just the deadline for filing paperwork or is that when the auction starts.
