T-Mobile, Leap agree to swap AWS spectrum


Recommended Posts

From FierceWireless

 

T-Mobile USA and Leap Wireless (NASDAQ:LEAP) agreed to swap AWS spectrum in several markets across the country to boost capacity, which Leap said will help it improve its LTE capacity as it deploys the technology.

The deals also involve Leap's noncontrolled, majority-owned venture, Savary Island Wireless, as well as T-Mobile's joint venture with Cook Inlet. Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed. The FCC will need to approve the swaps.

 

Under the swap, Leap will get 10 MHz of additional AWS spectrum in Phoenix, and Houston, Galveston and Bryan-College Station, Texas. Leap and Savary will give T-Mobile spectrum in various markets in Alabama, Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The transactions also include intra-market exchanges among Leap, T-Mobile and Cook Inlet in Philadelphia, Wilmington, Atlantic City and various markets in Texas and New Mexico, and between Leap and Cook Inlet in certain markets in Texas.

Spectrum transactions happen all the time' date=' Josh. But unless you really follow the wireless industry closely, you hear about only the most significant deals.

That must be why I only hear of a few. I'm still learning about spectrum and the underlying components of the telecommunications industry. Up until this site, i've only ever concentrated on the phones themselves. Thanks AJ

I came to this site to get educated' date=' and every time I think I'm getting comfortable with the terminology/technology, someone goes and ups the bar. I feel like I'm back in a AP class in school.[/quote']

 

You and me both, and i never took AP classes in high school. :( (I'm smart enough that I should have though) :(

Advanced Placement. Classes for the smart people. I was in AP classes in 6th grade, but failed them terribly because I didn't try to apply myself.

I was in advanced math but spent the better part of high school in the industrial tech wing. LOL

I was "gifted". Worst curse you could wish on someone.

 

Why is that a curse? I wish I had tried harder when I was younger. Instead I was lazy and almost had to be held back in the 6th grade and my mom begged my new school to place me in 7th. :blush:

When everything is so easy in school you get used to being lazy.

 

Still, I suppose I prefer having smarts over not.

My dad told me "Well son, you tried, and you failed. The lesson is, never try." Oh, wait, that was Homer Simpson. Doh!

It wasn't so much everything being easy as it was that I just didn't care too much. I got too bored too easy. My mom almost even had me tested for ADD. The biggest problem with public schools in Nevada is that the books are around 5 years older than they should be, and it just makes everything that much worse. I sure wish I had tried instead. Could have been Valedictorian if I had tried hard enough. Oh well.

It's not a Nevada thing. Washoe, Douglas, Carson City and Churchill County schools are very good in the North. However, Nye and Clark Counties probably are what you are referring to.

That might be what it is.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
