No, they gave it all to ATT like morons. 

Sprint should fight for it. Doesn't this wipe out the coverage cspire does for Sprint? TMobile should fight for the 700 mhz. Att can have the AWS

They should fight for it but I think it's a done deal. I don't know what will happen with the roaming agreement.

Cspire isn't really roaming. When I was in Mississippi I got native signal and I had boost at the time. In Jackson Mississippi there is 10x10 Cblock plus G block so I wonder what happens with that?

Oh yeah it does count as native doesn't it? Yeah I don't know what will happen then. The only way it doesn't happen is if the FCC says no which I highly doubt they will.

Does anyone know if these spectrum licences are in areas they currently do not offer service in or are they excess capacity sitting in the garage?

More capacity. They likely only have 5x5 B12 and will get 10x10. I say TMobile should fight cause their are areas they don't have B12 at all so it's not far. Most of the licenses are the B and C block but so what. Tho this article also says the A Block which is even more unfair as that would give them 15x15 holding

Thanks, I'm wondering from a C-spire perspective has this spectrum been in service or if it is in areas they do not currently service where the licenses are located.
Good question. I know Mississippi is one and they operate there. Florida is on this article so that I don't know

I am just surprised C-Spire and US Cellular have not been bought up yet by one of the "major four" carriers. 
Att is trying with cspire and uscc isn't willing to sell. Sprint did get them in some areas where uscc couldn't do LTE.

It isn't much PCS really and where it is it is just in AL, AK, and FL.  I didn't look up those specific counties in those states, but I'd assume C Spire is pulling out of FL and AL.  Don't think they offered anything in AK. 

The 700MHz they are dumping is in the Memphis area within MS which is a bit interesting. 

AWS is interesting cause it includes MS, but most of it is just 10MHz.  

 

When Sprint acquired PCS/700 in Memphis area a few years ago, it included C-Spire gaining access to Sprint's spectrum portfolio in a handful of counties.  Not sure which counties these are but it would be interesting to go back and look that up.

That article says due 700 mhz it could give them enough for 15x15 which isn't fair to other carriers

It is interesting that it is looking specifically at 700.  AT&T is acquiring twice as much PCS+AWS.

Wonder who it isn't fair for.  AT&T will have 73MHz average in the effected counties of low band, up from 68MHz. Looks like VZW has 49MHz and TMobile 40MHz.  So give it to Sprint!? lol

TMobile doesn't have B12 in some of the areas where they want it. Mississippi one of them

If T-Mobile wanted it bad enough, their name would be on the application.  With them owned 40MHz of 600, and there still being extra 600 to be had in the areas, getting 700 may not be as urgent for them as it once was.

    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
    • The Verge wrote an article on Dish’s network.    https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/1/23188077/dish-wireless-project-genesis-first-week-testing-speeds-coverage
    • I guess that makes sense. I know that ZiplyFiber (my ISP) has had issues with sourcing fiber as well.  Also, that recently upgraded site is interesting. NOt only does it have a strange eNB value, 236960, which  is different from the ones usually around here but also, all of the LTE bands (including B41) are on the same eNB. This is the first time I have seen  T-Mobile do that in this area.  Also found another upgraded site, eNB 84770, by FireStation 26 has been upgraded with B71/n71 (no n41). 
    • Almost the exact same thing happened on my Verizon Galaxy Flip a couple days ago.
