AT&T and Qualcomm

Timeline | Orders & Public Notices | Record Documents | Applications | Contacts

AT&T, through its subsidiary AT&T Mobility Spectrum LLC ("AT&T Mobility"), and Qualcomm Incorporated ("Qualcomm") seek Commission approval to assign six D-block and five E-block licenses in the Lower 700 MHz band from Qualcomm to AT&T Mobility.

AT&T and Qualcomm state that the transaction will allow AT&T to repurpose Qualcomm's underutilized spectrum to improve AT&T's service and support the demand for mobile broadband. They state that AT&T will use supplemental downlink technology (also referred to as carrier aggregation technology) to couple this unpaired spectrum with paired spectrum that AT&T already holds. The licenses at issue cover more than 300 million people nationwide, including more than 70 million people in five of the top 15 metropolitan areas (New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and San Francisco). Preliminary review of the application indicates that in various license areas, post-transaction AT&T would hold between 6 and 80 megahertz of spectrum below 1 GHz. See the Public Notice for more information.
