AWS-3 Auction Results

  1. Dish-affiliated bidders, with their DE credits, managed to secure a lot of “G” blocks in major metro areas.
  2. AT&T is still at a deficit of spectrum in the top 10 markets. Things get better after that.
  3. Verizon is doing OK on spectrum, they have enough spectrum in the top 25 markets to do 20×20 LTE (if they can manage to either do intra-band aggregation or make some spectrum swap deals with the other carriers).
  4. T-Mobile spent very little in the auction, but I think that’s on purpose (they want more 600MHz spectrum). They picked up a little spectrum here and there at a great value.
