Good to get spectrum It's great that they're getting more spectrum. Why on earth are they suggesting it's for home use? It should be pretty obvious that it's for capacity. Most phones now "park" on the PCS band, even when there is CLR available, but can drop to CLR if the PCS gets too weak. That's exactly what this band will do, like AWS, for LTE. Say 2/3 of the customers on a given tower at a given time can use it. They can go between WCS and AWS with tons of capacity, and clear the way on 700 for the users that need the penetration.
However, this doesn't help them for a couple of years, as they have to get it, implement it in devices, and build the network out. Unfortunately, they didn't get T-Mobile, as that was the only short-term fix for spectrum, since they could put the PCS band to work right now. 700 and AWS will start making a significant impact when the iPhone 5 comes out, and continue to do so over the next couple of years.
