Does Sprint actually OWN Band 25's G Block?

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I've been doing a lot of research in regards to where in the world PCS Block G came from, and found out that it resulted from Nextel's interference issues with 800MHz. According to the FCC document that discusses this (https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-04-168A1.pdf), Nextel only gets a 10 year license on this block. Obviously, it's been about 10 years or about to be. Did Sprint actually pay to own the spectrum, or in this license still in effect? What does this mean since LTE is running off the G Block? 


All answers/comments are appreciated, I'm really curious!

No FCC licensee "owns" any spectrum.  It belongs to the American people.  So, all spectrum is licensed on a renewal basis.  The PCS G block is no different in that regard.  Your concerns are much ado about nothing.
