    With this weeks filing to transfer all King Street Wireless holdings to US Cellular, there appears to be more transactions coming. Logic would say they will sell of the B12 in non US Cellular markets and TMo is likely willing to buy and deploy it immediately. With this, native B71 deployment in rural areas, full roaming on US Cellular LTE rolling out, little need for TMo to buy US Cellular straight up.

    The theory is USM will sell the 700 Mhz Blocks A,B & C where they aren't using B12 now or doing Biz now. Light blue is US Cellular market territory (where they do business, as in retail stores and customers). The left over red area would be the areas potentially available for sale or partition assuming this is US Cellular's approach. Looks like the best areas for sale are in Illinois, Indiana & Wisconsin. Also, upstate NY since Canada's TV stations could slow down B71 deployment. Maybe, West Virginia but T-Mobile owns 20x20 of 600 Mhz in WV but only since it is not a larger population in WV.

    This is all the 700 Mhz where King Street owns 700 Mhz they are transferring to their USM biz... Most of that 700 Mhz spectrum is being used by USM and is thus unlikely to be sold but T-Mobile customers can roam on it.

    Has USCC actually deployed that spectrum? USCC needs to make a decision if they want to remain in a market where they will likely only continue to get smaller. I have noticed them cutting rates which has me wondering if USCC is going to try to pump the numbers up then sell.

    That is good news. That means older band 12 phones will work in the UP.
