AT&T Gets Approval for Qualcomm Deal

Craig Matsumoto
12/22/2011

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave approval Thursday afternoon for AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) to acquire spectrum licenses from Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM), The Wall Street Journal is reporting.

It's a $1.9 billion deal, announced a year ago, for 700MHz spectrum to augment AT&T's LTE buildout. You'll recall that the spectrum in question was once used for Qualcomm's FLO TV.

Why this matters
The FCC decision isn't a surprise, because Chairman Julius Genachowski has already said he doesn't mind the Qualcomm deal. But it's an important step. Spectrum is going to be a big issue for AT&T now, especially with Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) having amassed more spectrum through deals with the cable companies.

re: AT&T Gets Approval for Qualcomm Deal


The spectrum AT&T bought is unpaired D and E bands - which is not FDD spectrum. AT&T says they plan to use for downlink carrier aggregation, but devices need to support this mode.

Their network is still crumbling. They are still massively over subscribed.

Get all LTE users streaming HD movies at the same time and see if even that is true .

You are going to have to be more specific in what you mean.

You said it.  All of them are massively oversubscribed.  ATT is the worst of the bigest and all of last year they were blaiming their problems for lack of a merger.  LTE is only going to make things worse for them.

re: AT&T Gets Approval for Qualcomm Deal


this is a huge step for at&amp;t since their current 4G &nbsp;lte coverage is very limited.this will allow them to compete with its top competitor verizon and make them much &nbsp;more competative and consumers will finally be able to use the full capability of at&amp;t's current 4G LTE smartphone line up. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;<img alt="at&amp;amp;t current 4g lte coverage" height="125"
