FCC approves spectrum transfer from AT&T to T-Mobile

26 Apr 2012

The FCC has approved the transfer of spectrum in 128 markets from AT&T to T-Mobile USA. The transfer is a condition of the companies’ failed merger and will bolster T-Mobile’s LTE deployment plans. ‘We applaud the FCC for acting swiftly to approve the transfer of these spectrum licenses,’ said Neville Ray, chief technology officer for T-Mobile USA. ‘Securing this additional spectrum was a key catalyst for our plans to launch LTE in 2013 and is therefore good news for our customers.’
