FCC Transactions - September 26, 2018

In this week's FCC Transactions, Sprint has initiated a new EBS lease in Louisiana.  This spectrum was previously leased to Blue Bird Wireless.  ANTI continued leasing the rural parts of AT&T's 700MHz spectrum, this time focused north of Reno, NV.  In the last transaction, Standing Rock Communications leased the 700MHz A-block from Infrastructure Networks in 2 counties on the North and South Dakota border.  This is an interesting transaction because 700MHz - A block has typically been T-Mobile's focus.  In fact they have had other transactions with Infrastructure Networks for 700MHz - A block spectrum.  These are very rural counties that probably don't figure into T-Mobile's focus now that they control and have deployed 600MHz in other markets.
