We are not selling other spectrum we own in these markets (700 MHz licenses), corporate or field buildings located in these areas, or the naming rights to U.S. Cellular Field."

"So, first at closing Sprint will pay U.S. Cellular $480 million. As Mary mentioned the sale includes most of the PCS spectrum and 585,000 customers in our Chicago, St. Louis, Central Illinois, and Indiana, Michigan, Ohio markets. The sale also contemplates the number of related agreements, the most significant of which our two transition services agreements; one to cover network operations and the other customer services. Under which the terms will provide for U.S. Cellular to continue to operate the network and service and build customers for up to two years after the closing. Sprint will pay U.S. Cellular for these services. Sprint will also reimburse U.S. Cellular for certain cost related to decommissioning the network and employee termination benefits up to a defined cap. U.S. Cellular will be responsible for store closing cost including employee and termination benefits."

Re: Getting ready to sell the rest to AT&T?
said by BiggA:T doesn't need any more spectrum. They are already sitting on a large amount, along with Verizon Wireless
USCC's CLR and SMH holdings align very well with AT&T's. I wonder if they are getting ready to sell the rest to them, and did this to avoid regulatory headaches with Chicago, since AT&T owns the Chicago market, and giving them more customers and spectrum there would look really bad?

I think it is good A good signal depends upon the location of towers, quality of phone, and technology. USCC owns obscure rural Illinois locations such as Bath and Astoria. AT&T, and T-Mo were utterly useless in Astoria. Sprint and Verizon phones using CDMA roam on each others towers in most rural locations in Central Illinois But this may not be the case in towns larger than 100,000, or in Cities over 1,000,000 population. Plus Sprint and VZN may not share towers in the future. Verizon claims they own all the towers Sprint roams on - which is a lie. .
AT&T is not good in rural areas. Bell build out the Peoria area copper but nothing else. It did the same in Springfield. Rural central Illinois was left to carriers like GenTel, Cass, and CenTel to serve the little towns. Now that carriers like CenuryTel have switched to FIOS driven digital over copper in rural areas AT&T wants a piece of the action.
As AT&T has not been terribly generous in the past with rural for 100 years, or even particularly concerned about call quality, I don't know why it should be given any consideration today.
