Sprint Looks to Buy Midwest PCS Spectrum Licenses from Revol Wireless
Sprint plans to take over 12 PCS licenses—covering parts of Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania—from Cleveland Unlimited, which operates at Revol Wireless.
In an FCC filing, Sprint said the licenses will be used to improve its network and expand deployment of new wireless services. The proposed transaction would give Sprint access to 10 to 16.4 MHz of PCS spectrum covering 56 counties in 23 Cellular Market Areas (CMA). Following the transaction, Sprint would hold a maximum of 129.5 MHz of spectrum across those CMAs.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed in the filing.
Sprint recently revealed that it does not intend to participate in the FCC’s upcoming H Block PCS spectrum auction, opting instead to acquire additional spectrum through private transactions.
