FCC Transactions - November 14, 2018
In this weeks FCC Transactions, T-Mobile is acquiring the remaining 700MHz - A block markets from Cavalier Wireless.  Prior to their previous multi-license 700MHz - A block sale to T-Mobile, Cavalier dis-aggregated the Greensboro and Charlotte metro areas from their original license areas.  Cavalier did this to potentially sell those urban areas to USCellular, which has a large North Carolina operation.  Evidently that didn't work out and the licenses were available for T-Mobile to acquire.  The week Custer Telephone executed a long term lease for Verizon's 700MHz - Upper C block spectrum over a small area in Lemhi County, ID.
