Mobile Carrier Spectrum Screen - T-Mobile and Sprint August 28, 2018 13:20

With our September 2018 release of the Mobile Carrier - Spectrum Ownership Analysis Tool, we have added a FCC Spectrum Screen analysis to the County Analysis Module and the CMA Market Analysis Module.  With respect to the T-Mobile and Sprint merger announcement, the Spectrum Screen analysis will provide you with a composite look at the T-Mobile/Sprint spectrum assets across the Mobile Carrier frequency bands (600MHz-2.5GHz).

Following the FCC Spectrum Screen Definitions our Spectrum Screen analysis does not include the WCS guard band or the BRS1 channel which are included in our 'normal' spectrum depth totals.  In addition, the Spectrum Screen only includes 70% of the EBS spectrum holdings.

County Analysis Module:
In the County Analysis Module we include the breakouts for the EBS and BRS spectrum bands, along with (in the dark pink columns) the modifications to these values for the FCC Spectrum Screen.  You can compare 7 other carrier's spectrum holdings with the joint T-Mobile/Sprint spectrum.  Please contact us if you need any assistance setting up the data in your Mobile Carrier - Spectrum Ownership Analysis Tool to model the T-Mobile/Sprint merger.
CMA Market Analysis:
Spectrum Screen Analysis has been extended to the CMA Market Analysis module.  The Spectrum Screen values are population weighted averages of the county-level detail.  In this view, you can use the Auto Filter to select the FCC Spectrum Screen threshold, highlighting the markets over or under the threshold.  In addition, you can select any of our 1900 wireless carriers to determine their spectrum holdings in the identified CMA markets.
