600MHz Auction Results and Mobile Carrier Spectrum Depth Analysis April 14, 2017 06:30

We have released a mid-month update to our Mobile Carrier - Spectrum Ownership Analysis Tool, to include the results of the 600MHz Auction.  The FCC announced the auction winners on 4/13.  Below is a screen shot of our Spectrum Grid reflecting the channel winners and the new 3GPP band class (71) that is already in the standardization process.

Next is an updated National Weighted Average Chart reflecting the average spectrum depth (population weighted average) for Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Dish, USCellular, Comcast, and the FCC.  Looking at the low band spectrum summaries, T-Mobile clearly closed the gap on low band spectrum going from a national weighted average of about 8 to 41 MHz.

The image below comes from our County - Spectrum Depth analysis module, depicting the same 8 carriers spectrum depth for the counties in the New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago CMA markets.  This module also details the spectrum holdings in each of these counties by frequency band.
