How does AT&T feel about the FCC auction results?


Earlier today the FCC announced the winners of the 700MHz auction and AT&T swooped up the B-block in case you were wondering about the image. Instead of AT&T’s logo I decided to give you folks some eye candy.

“AT&T’s strong spectrum holdings position the company to further enhance the quality and reliability of existing wireless broadband and voice services, and to set the foundation for new-generation wireless broadband technologies and services.” said Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of AT&T’s wireless unit.

Upon final award of this spectrum, the company’s 700 MHz spectrum will cover 100 percent of the top 200 markets. Combined with the spectrum previously purchased in the AWS auction, AT&T will have quality, spectrum available for new services covering 95 percent of the U.S. population. With this spectrum we can continue to deliver the latest technology and best-in-class services to our customers as the wireless industry grows and evolves.
