bigsnake49 Posted November 2, 2012 Share Posted November 2, 2012 FierceWireless: Can you talk about any specific discussions Leap has had about network or spectrum sharing? Hutcheson: The European model on that is something I think has merit to be thought about here in the U.S. as well, particularly when you look at that spectrum asset that we have. It really is a circumstance for collaboration that could make a lot of sense. With that said I don't have any specific comments about any one conversation. FierceWireless: What about an outright sale of Leap's excess spectrum? Hutcheson: That's not what I'm talking about here, but the concept on that is to focus on benefitting the shareholder appropriately. FierceWireless: Do you have a value assigned to your spectrum? Hutcheson: Our spectrum portfolio [both used and unused spectrum] is worth about $3 billion. FierceWireless: Some analysts have suggested that Leap could potentially sell all its spectrum and its network and become an MVNO.

Leap should let Sprint host its spectrum and become an MVNO. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
