AT&T To Buy Sprint's 2.3 GHz WCS Spectrum Licenses
by Karl Bode 08:06AM Wednesday May 14 2014
AT&T's spectrum treasure trove grows on the news that the company will be buying all of Sprint's 19 2.3 GHz WCS licenses covering Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Alabama, and Georgia. AT&T has been working for some time on the ability to use the WCS band for LTE services, and has been working on a long string of deals to accumulate as much WCS spectrum as possible. AT&T didn't disclose how much they paid for the spectrum or what they intend to use it for specifically, though it could fuel AT&T's recently announced push into in-flight broadband services.

AT&T is actually the only one currently deploying WCS spectrum. Other carriers have it but are choosing not to use it.

Not a lot of it and ATT does use it. Sprint would be unlikely too use it.

Not of much use

High frequency and not a lot of it...
