T-Mobile and MetroPCS want Dish to give up half of its spectrum | The Verge

Dish is still in the process of working with the FCC on the terms for building out its own LTE network, but if T-Mobile and MetroPCS have their way the company will be giving back half of its spectrum for auction. In two separate FCC filings, both T-Mobile and MetroPCS urged the commission to “reassign” 20 MHz of Dish’s portion of the 2 GHz band, which would then be auctioned off to other providers. The arrangement would allow Dish to keep the other half of its spectrum assignment for building out a network, and T-Mobile claims that such a move would “promote competition for mobile broadband services and further the public interest.”
