    Was ATT the big spender at auction 110?

    "We still believe AT&T will be the highest bidder in Auction 110 (~$9 billion), followed by a steep drop-off to Verizon (~$5 billion), and then again to Dish Network and T-Mobile (~$2 billion each)," wrote the financial analysts at Raymond James in a note to investors this week.

    lightreading is garbage and often gets things wrong and posts FUD. First they said Verizon wasn't going participate at all then they claimed Verizon was trying to kill the auction now they say Verizon spent the 2nd most. They also claimed the auction wasn't going to reach the minimum when when it did said it would barely go past that. Yet it went $7.1 bil past that. Now do I think at&t spent the most? Sure Verizon spent more than $5 bil and T-Mobile barely spent anything. not sure where they get their info. T-Mobile has no reason to buy anything and they need to save up for the 2.5 GHz auction next year. Dish didn't spent squat in the C-band auction and barely spent anything in the CBRS auction. magically they are going to participate heavily in this one? Wouldn't shock me if Verizon's spend was close to at&t's spend

    Still have the have the assignment phase then the winners will be announced. Hopefully the FCC announces the assignment phase schedule tomorrow. It it starts early next week and doesn't last more than a couple of weeks we might know the winners before Christmas

    I agree with this. AT&T went big, and no way Verizon wasn't bidding to win in target areas. VZW desperately needs it in areas like Traverse City, and other northern Michigan cities where they have 0 wideband (other than C band which is a few years out) and only 5 MHz PCS. Equipment is already out from Ericsson and Nokia that supports the spectrum.

    The Assignment Phase has just concluded. Auction 110 ending with gross proceeds of $22,513,601,811. We should hear something soon I hope.

    Looking forward to this one. I agree with others here - my guess is ATT wins, but Verizon takes up a close second. T-Mo has more spectrum than they can handle right now, and I don't really know why Dish would bid big.

    Meanwhile, Verizon is going full steam ahead with 5G Home Internet, having more n77 nationwide accessible ASAP seems to fit in well with that strategy.

    Also worth noting that of the carriers, Verizon is the one with the most experience dealing with the DoD due to all those huge contracts. Therefore they're well-positioned to negotiate usage of n77 DoD spectrum.

    I would say that AT&T is also well-positioned since they coordinate usage of their spectrum on different military bases and have been involved in the talks about 6Ghz and 4.9Ghz sharing usage between unlicensed and licensed.

    IIRC, carriers also had to coordinate with the DoD on AWS3 uplink spectrum clearance as well. Most of the sites in my area weren't able to access AWS3 as a PCC until the last year or two because of their exclusion zones with certain dates for clearance.

    U.S. government: "We want America to be the global leader in technology!"

    Also U.S. government: "You want to do literally anything to make cellular networks better? Have you considered: Go F yourself?"

    LOL. I think this deserves comment of the month!! Tell us what you really think......


    We should be hearing something fairly soon and I'm confident AT&T was the big winner.

    Just looking at all the major PEAs from the auction results. It appears AT&T got 40 MHz/4 licenses nationwide or near nationwide. They didn't get all the same contiguous blocks however, with most areas having overlapping blocks.

    Where can you see the results from each PEA? I'm looking at a link to the public notice on the FCC website, and it only outlines the bidders' license counts and what they will be paying.

    ATT Inc. committed nearly $9.1 billion for new airwave licenses as the top bidder in a government auction that fetched a total of $22.5 billion, marking another leg in a race by U.S. wireless carriers to build advanced 5G networks.

    As the third-largest U.S. wireless carrier both in subscribers and in midband spectrum holdings, AT&T used the auction to close the gap with its rivals. The company is reorienting itself toward 5G services and fiber-delivered broadband, and unloading the $100 billion in TV and media businesses it acquired under previous management.

    With the second-highest bid, Dish Network Corp. will pay $7.3 billion, according to the Federal Communications Commission, which ran the auction. Other bidders included T-Mobile US Inc. with a $2.9 billion commitment.
