CableOne Plans to Sell AWS Spectrum to AT&T
AT&T has struck yet another spectrum deal, this time with CableOne Communications. A new proposal filed at the FCC
details plans for CableOne to sell sell 20 megahertz of AWS-1 A Block spectrum to AT&T in 24 cellular market areas in various states. The companies tell the FCC the deal would "serve the public interest because it would enable AT&T to increase its system capacity to enhance existing services, better accommodate its overall growth, and facilitate the provision of additional products and services to the public." AT&T has struck more than 45 different spectrum deals since claiming two years ago that they'd be unable to expand their network without acquiring T-Mobile.
