FCC Transactions - September 5, 2018
In this week's FCC Transactions AT&T was very active.  AT&T filed to acquire 2 PCS spectrum licenses and 3 AWS1 spectrum licenses from Nsight Spectrum in Michigan and Wisconsin.  AT&T also initiated spectrum exchanges with both Flat Wireless and USCellular.  The Flat Wireless exchange is focused on the Texas and Oklahoma areas and the USCellular exchange is also focused in the Oklahoma area.  The Flat Wireless exchange only included AWS1 licenses while the USCellular exchange included both PCS and AWS3 licenses.  The remaining transactions involve the 700MHz Guard Band.  Perennial Public Power is acquiring the 700MHz-GB in two Nebraska counties and Double Dog Communication is leasing the 700MHz-GB in one Pennsylvania county.

Weekly Spectrum Transaction Summary - August 31, 2018 August 31, 2018 11:11

FCC Transactions from August 29, 2018
In this week's FCC Transactions there are 4 themes.  First, AT&T and USCellular are swapping spectrum in the mid west and northwest.  Through these transactions AT&T is receiving 8 - 700MHz B and C block licenses while USCellular is receiving a PCS and AWS3 license.  This is a curious transaction because AT&T has access to the 700MHz FirstNet spectrum in all of these markets.  This will allow AT&T to increase their 700MHz LTE channel by 5MHz in some markets and in CMA406, AT&T will be able to finally launch 700MHz LTE (a 10MHz channel).
The second theme has Verizon acquiring two AWS1 licenses from Mediapolis Telephone in Illinois and Iowa.
The remaining themes involve the 700MHz guard band channel.  Avista Corporation is acquiring 3 licenses in the Northwest from Access 700 and BPC Spectrum.  In addition, MitoTec is leasing 11 licenses across the southwest, mid west, and northeast from Access 700.

FCC Transactions - August 15, 2018
In this week's FCC Transactions, Skyriver files to acquire M&M Brothers 24GHz spectrum.  These 4 licenses are the only remaining 24GHz licenses not in the FCC control.  Last week, the FCC worked out an agreement with M&M Brothers to shift their spectrum held in these 4 - PEA markets to assist in freeing up contiguous blocks of spectrum for the 24GHz auction.  There are 4 - 700MHz Guard band transactions this week.  Clarity Connect is leasing the guard band for two counties in New York, and Communication Infrastructure is leasing all of the Salt Lake MEA and nearly all of the Denver MEA counties.  ATNI continued their strategy of leasing AT&T's non-FirstNet 700MHz spectrum in the rural western states for rural roaming.  In the last block of transactions, Sprint submitted new leases with Hampton Road Educational Group for continued access to 10 EBS call signs covering the Northern Virginia area.

FCC Transactions - August 1, 2018
In this week's FCC transactions, Verizon is acquiring AWS3 licenses from Smith Bagley in Alabama, California, and Pennsylvania.  First Communications is reacquiring the LMDS licenses in Ohio that they assigned to T-Mobile several months ago.  While T-Mobile controlled the licenses, the FCC issued new licenses for what is now the L1 and L2 channels of the Upper Microwave Flexible Use Service spectrum.  Thus, T-Mobile still owns 850MHz of spectrum in each of these markets.  Sprint has 3 new leases.  Two of those leases are in San Diego where they previously leased the same licenses.  The third lease is for Davenport, IA which was previously leased to SpeedConnect.  ATNI expanded their leases with AT&T to include AT&T's 700MHz spectrum in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Colorado.  These appears to be ATNI's first leases for low band spectrum with AT&T.  The final lease appears to SI Wireless leasing 600MHz spectrum from a parent company.

FCC Transactions from July 25, 2018

 
This week's FCC transactions start with the assignment of all Joseph Sofio's AWS3 licenses to Blue Ridge Wireless.  This appears to be related to corporate structuring.  Joseph only recently received these AWS3 licenses.  The next transaction assigns an EBS license from one educational entity (West Central Illinois Education Telecom) to another (Southern Illinois University).  This spectrum will continue to be subleased to Sprint.  Verizon has executed 3 assignments with ATNI to receive one full license and two partial licenses in Texas, Alabama, and Nevada.  In return, ATNI is receiving a partial license in New Mexico.  Also in the assignments, Sprint is purchasing a BRS license in Hawaii, and the Detroit School District is assigning one of their licenses to another affiliated entity.  In Guam, Sprint is receiving access to a paired 1.25MHz of SMR spectrum from Choice Wireless.  Cherry Capital is leasing the 700MHz Guard Band from BPS Spectrum in 9 Michigan counties.  Rounding through the last transactions, Sprint initiated two new leases, one in Idaho and one in San Diego, CA.  They were already leasing the San Diego license and the Idaho license is another SpeedConnect takeover.  Finally, Crystal Automation is leasing two EBS channels in two Michigan counties.

FCC Transactions from July 18, 2018
 
In this week's FCC transactions, 360 Communications filed a lease for EBS channels in Lawton, OK.  Sprint also leased additional EBS channels in Pocatello, ID.  River Valley Internet leased the 700MHz Guard Band in Clinton, PA.  Typically this band is being by power companies for automation so it is unusual to see a broadband company accessing this spectrum since it is only a 1MHz paired channel.  In the final three transactions, Skyriver is leasing millimeter wave spectrum from Verizon in Los Angeles and San Diego.

Only one transaction was posted this week.  Looking in detail at the assignee and assignor information, this appears to just be a movement of the license between two licensee names because Chat Mobility appears to have ownership ties to both entities.

FCC Transactions - July 5, 2018

This week's transactions are very limited due to the 4th of July holiday.  In addition, the FCC typically posts two different documents that include the week's transactions, but in their July 5 Daily Digest, the electronic files for both of these posts were identical, meaning a correction including the correct second document will be included in a future Daily Digest.
In this week's transactions, NEIT Wireless (an Iowa wireless carrier) initiated a lease for a portion of AT&T's PCS-C license in Butler County, IA.   Sprint also initiated a lease for a EBS-D1 channel in Del Rio, TX.  Sprint did not previous lease this license and they are only leasing the D1 channel, not the D2, D3, and D4 channels that are also on this license.

FCC Transactions - June 27, 2018

In this weeks' FCC transactions Western Farmers Electric Coop has filed to acquire the 700MHz guard band from Access 700 in many mid-western markets.  Arctic Slope (a northern Alaska carrier) is leasing AT&T's PCS and 700MHz spectrum in their service territory.  Sprint filed a new lease for EBS spectrum in Denver.  Sprint previously leased this spectrum but the lease expired in 2009.  The last group of applications are lease transfers from various companies associated with Rise Broadband (Jeffrey Kohler) to LS Star Equity.  Many of these leases are in markets where Sprint has strengthened their spectrum position in the last few months.  It would appear that LS Star Equity may have intentions to assign these leases to Sprint at the right price.  All of these leases are for EBS spectrum except for a 28GHz lease for the Dallas/Fort Worth B channels.  The licensee for the Dallas 28GHz channels is Key Linx Partners, L.P.

FCC Transactions from June 20, 2018
The FCC transactions this week start with an assignment of a Minnesota EBS license from one educational group to another.  Next, Sprint acquires BRS spectrum licenses in Key West, FL and Hilo, HI.  360 Communications initiated a new lease for a EBS license spanning the Oklahoma/Arkansas border near Fort Smith.  Sprint's new leases with the University of Nebraska provide additional spectrum depth in Kearney, NE.  These leases effectively ended a lease arrangement with SpeedConnect.  The last group of leases with SpeedConnect provide Sprint additional spectrum in Cedar Rapids and Davenport, IA.

Wireless Telecommunication Bureau Accepting Applications to Modify Existing Licenses in the 39 GHz Band
https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-18-619A1.pdf  
This notification was released Friday.  With this Public Notice, the FCC is enabling the existing licensees in the 39GHz band to voluntarily modify their licenses from 50MHz by 50MHz paired licenses to new PEA market licenses.  With this Public Notice the FCC is providing a path for partial county licenses and a strategy to move existing 50MHz and 100MHz channels into the new 200MHz channel blocks.  In short, the FCC will allow the 200MHz blocks to be dis-aggregated into 50MHz and 100MHz channels. Applications to modify existing 39 GHz licenses will be accepted until February 1, 2019, which will likely prevent an auction from being considered for the 39GHz band until at least late 2019.

FCC Transactions - June 13, 2018

In this weeks' FCC transactions, T-Mobile and Central Texas Telephone exchange AWS1 licenses in San Angelo, TX and T-Mobile acquires 6 counties of 700MHz - A block spectrum between the San Antonio and San Angelo, TX markets. This further expands the potential service area for T-Mobile's LTE+ service. Sprint is acquiring PCS and 700MHz licenses in Puerto Rico from PRWireless (Open Mobile). It is interesting to note that Sprint will now control a license for the 700MHz - Upper C block (Verizon's block). The remaining transactions are new leases for Sprint covering Idaho, Nebraska, and Illinois. All of these are new leases, not previously under another carriers control, except the Nebraska lease which was previous held by Xanadoo which has been immersed in a bankruptcy process.

FCC Transactions Posted on May 24, 2018
In this week's transactions Verizon is acquiring 6 of Cleartalk's PCS and AWS1 licenses, primarily in Minnesota, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Idaho.   Sprint is leasing EBS spectrum in Idaho Falls, ID and Flagstaff, AZ.  These leases were previously in SpeedConnect's control.   The next 38 leases are between Commnet (ATNI) and AT&T.   Commnet is leasing typically a 5 or 10 MHz channel for roaming outside of AT&T's coverage in Colorado, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona.  Some of these licenses appear to target resorts and tourist locations like Moab and the Staircases.  This is a significant increase in the areas that Commnet will have available for roaming coverage.  On a similar note, Inland Cellular and Sprint have initiated leases on Sprint's 800MHz SMR block (Sprint's low band LTE and CDMA) outside of Sprint's existing coverage in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon.  This continues Inland's strategy from last week to increase their rural spectrum in each of these markets.  This is the first we have seen Sprint lease their SMR spectrum.  These leases doesn't make a lot of sense when you consider the T-Mobile/Sprint merger, in which they will be increase their targeting these more rural markets but these transactions were probably well underway before the merger was announced..  The last group of transaction are leases of Sprint's BRS spectrum in Michigan and Iowa by SpeedConnect.

In this week's transactions, Sprint acquired new leases near Sioux Falls, SD and Davenport, IA that were previously controlled by Speed Connect.  In the next group of leases, Inland Cellular is leasing Sprint's PCS spectrum in Eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon.  The maps indicate that Inland is leasing Sprint spectrum outside of Sprint's existing coverage.  It is also important to highlight that Inland is not leasing Sprint's PCS-G channel in these markets, thus Sprint has retained the ability to build these areas but with fewer spectrum resources than their existing markets.  The last group of transactions provide Northeast Communication of Wisconsin with access to Verizon's AWS1 spectrum in Wisconsin rural areas.

FCC Assignment Transactions posted on April 18, 2018
In this week's transaction report, there are 3 groupings of transactions.  First, RigNet (a commercial operator to oil platforms in the gulf) is acquiring AT&T's 700 C&D block licenses covering just the Gulf of Mexico.  The D block licenses in ULS didn't properly show licenses over the Gulf so RigNet/AT&T submitted the original FCC EAG regions map indicating their inclusion in the EAG703 and EAG705 licenses.  The second grouping is Sprint's continued roll up of 2.5GHz leases in areas that SpeedConnect was the previous lessee.  As Sprint has committed to overlaying 2.5GHz on all of its towers, these new leases provide new or expanded channels in ID, MI, TX, NE, SD, and MT.  Predominately, these licenses cover rural areas.  The third grouping is a pending termination of PCS licenses in American Samoa.  American Samoa Telecom Authority has already filed an extension request citing the difficulty to build in a market with limited flights and a challenge that followed a cyclone hitting the islands.  I consider it likely that the FCC will approve their extension request in which American Samoa Telecom Authority indicated that would meet the construction bench marks by July 2018.

FCC Assignment Transactions posted on April 11, 2018  
This week there are 3 simple transactions and one complicated transaction.  First, Sprint has completed a new lease for EBS spectrum covering the Port Arthur, TX area.  Second, Panhandle Telecommunication filed two long term leases for a total of three counties in the panhandle of Oklahoma.  The last transfer transaction is confusing because it relates to the LMDS spectrum licenses that T-Mobile began acquiring in December 2017 and has consummated.  This transfer application was filed in 2005 as Cortelyou went into bankruptcy protection.  I assume the courts finalized the bankruptcy and allowed these licenses to be conveyed to ATX Communications.  ATX Communications had already assigned these licenses to First Communications in late 2005 who assigned them to T-Mobile in December 2017.  I believe the only purpose of the Cortelyou/ATX Communication transactions is to clear up the ownership lineage, but does not affect the current ownership of the spectrum which is currently in T-Mobile's control.
