T-Mobile rumoured to have made a play for Verizon frequencies

21 Nov 2013

T-Mobile US has reportedly approached Verizon Wireless with a view to buying spectrum from the mobile giant, likely the carrier’s 700MHz A block frequencies. While neither party has been willing to formally comment on the story, speaking to Fierce Wireless at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in Barcelona, Verizon Communications CFO Fran Shammo commented: ‘The A [block] spectrum is out there, and if someone walks up to me with an offer, we will entertain it. This is not a fire sale though, so if we do not get the right offer, we will deploy the spectrum in our own network’.
