    Or do the companies hate each other so much that they’d hold onto things just to spite each other?

    Now that level of stupidity would not surprise me. However they have done spectrum swap plenty of times even if it means in one area the other guy improves and thus is a more viable competitor.

    Also though seeing as at&t is $150 bil in debt and it is selling off just about everything they can think of to lower that debt. Doing spectrum swap with Verizon and then also have Verizon throw in some cash( because it would be an uneven swap ) might be something at&t considers. The only major region where Verizon would lack 850 is Milwaukee and Madison Wisconsin as USSC owns the other block

    Spectrum swaps happen all the time. T-Mobile and VZ have done plenty to get their AWS holdings contiguous across the country. Verizon should of bidded in the 600 MHz auction in areas where they lack band 5 . I don’t know why they passed on that

    Were these willing spectrum swaps, or were they in an effort to curry favor with the FCC in an auction down the road? Or were they under FCC pressure to avoid “anti-comperitive practices” accusations?

    Because maybe Verizon didn't want to possibly wait until just now to have lowband. Also only a few areas would have had 600 and most of the nation would not. Verizon would have to have been all in or all out and in many areas Verizon wasn't even allowed to bid thanks to rules T-Mobile has installed so they could get spectrum on the cheap

    Verizon did participate in the auction and were allowed to bid . They just decided to pass on low band
