    AT&T will have more spectrum than Verizon later

    "The carrier claims that once all of the regulatory procedures have been completed, it will have about 118MHz of spectrum available to it across the nation. Compared to Verizon and its 105MHz, AT&T will have more spectrum at its disposal, but Sprint and Softbank are still far ahead with their 195MHz of available spectrum."

    Sucks to know that AT&T will have more than Verizon later. How does it get divided across the nation? Do you think Verizon will acquire more spectrum?

    I couldn't care less about what AT&T's LTE is gonna be in 2015+.
    They've basically announced that they'll miss their 250 mil goal by the end to 2013, and moved it to "end of 2014 with 50million extra pops" with some sweet talk. They're buying time through their promises.
    Verizon has been effectively using their 700Mhz LTE spectrum for the past 2 years with 400+ markets.

    I'll take action over sweet talk any day.
    Verizon Wireless 20Mhz FDD LTE

    Precisely! While AT&T talks and talks, Verizon goes to work. It's been like that for a long time now.

    That's the first thing that came to mind when I read the article. How many times have we heard AT&T make promises like this? Promises that never saw the light of day.

    Dear AT&T: Shut up and start building.

    AT&T is positioning themselves well for some serious LTE.

    I'd take Verizon's underpromise/overachieving strategy over all-talk-att any day. They're all PR.

    AT&T: When it comes to networks, we don't just drop the call, we also drop the ball!

    At$t still hasn't finished rolling out HSPA+, let alone LTE.

    It does seem like vz uses spectrum more efficiently overall so having more spectrum only goes so far if it's not utilized.

    It's sad Sprint will have more spectrum, but they don't have as much coverage, so they are out.
    But AT&T has a little less than Verizon, so they can compete. I will wait and see how this turns out.

    The sad thing is it is in the AWS spectrum. Much like the 1900 (PCS) licensed areas it takes 3-4 times the cell sites, equipment, and technical employees to maintain it (vs 850 Mhz). This is a huge expense for at&t. They were reluctant to aquire certain 1900 Mhz providers due to that cost, even though the towers and infrastructure were in place.
    Their lack of stepping up on the 700 Mhz licenses, other than in metro areas, is coming back to bite them in the butt. It will fair well for those of you in metro areas, and its needed there the most. Data usage and network restaints are nationwide. I think its just a band-aid on at&t's part.
    We still need to see infrastructure and end-user equipment that will work on AWS. Only time will tell.
