AT&T and Sprint Seek Consent to Transfer WCS Spectrum


Wholly owned subsidiaries of AT&T, Inc. (AT&T) and Sprint Corporation (Sprint) have filed an application seeking Federal Communications Commission consent to assign 19 A and B Block Wireless Communications Service (WCS) licenses to AT&T from Sprint.  The applicants state that the proposed assignments would facilitate the transition of WCS spectrum to mobile broadband use and allow AT&T to make more efficient use of spectrum to provide new and better services to customers.  AT&T would be assigned 10 to 20 MHz of WCS A and B Block spectrum in 713 counties in 153 Cellular Market Areas across parts of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.  Post-transaction, AT&T would hold between 36 and 165 MHz of spectrum in these 713 counties.  Interested parties must file petitions to deny no later than July 2, 2014.  Oppositions to such pleadings must be filed no later than July 14, 2014, and replies are due July 21, 2014.
