It looks like AT&T is making a move for some more 700MHz spectrum, according to the FCC's latest information. A deal between AT&T and Broadband Wireless Unlimited will see the US telco receive more 700MHz spectrum in several markets across the US.

Concerned parties will have until November 14 to submit their complaints, if they have any, but if the deal goes through it will see AT&T receive license to more spectrum in the B Block of the 700MHz band, where it operates its LTE network - in specific markets where more bandwidth is required.

This additional spectrum would be used in markets where it's needed most, which is set to be Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. AT&T could also have anywhere between 70 and 125MHz of spectrum available to use, post-acquisition.
