AT&T has announced a deal with Verizon Wireless that will allow the company to continue to build out its 4G LTE network in the U.S., through the acquisition of 700 MHz spectrum from Verizon Wireless. The 700 MHz band was originally used to broadcast analog TV channels, but the transition to digital TV made them available for auction in 2008.
The ACMA has set out its plans to re-allocate spectrum in the 700MHz and 2.5GHz bands - the prime bands for mobile operators wanting to roll out FDD-LTE - that should see auctions for nationwide licences to the spectrum being held in late 2012.
