    It must be AT&T’s if it’s showing up on my carrier aggregation screen on my iPhone? That or the FCC let dish keep it?

    it's not just Dish, a whole slew of companies that are sitting on (mainly) AWS3, AWS4, and various 600 and 700mhz licenses, all have been transferred over to AT&T, VZW, and possibly others to temporarily use over the next few months. I'm guessing this block is with the FCC, and rather than having it unused they've sent it AT&T's way for now. (It is also possible that AT&T's purchased it but not necessarily.) With the software defined radio type hardware most newer sites have (edit: and AWS antennas..), this spectrum can be flipped on pretty quickly.

    I figured as much because I’ve never seen that slice of spectrum in my area before. So eventually that 5 MHz slice of band 66 may disappear in a few months? Of course providing AT&T doesn’t own that slice of spectrum.
