FCC Gives KanOkla Permission to Sell Spectrum to AT&T

Posted by at 10:23 am on August 28, 2015

The FCC has approved AT&T’s proposed acquisition of several spectrum licenses from KanOkla Telephone Association.

The transfer includes one Lower 700 MHz C Block license and the partial assignment of a second Lower 700 MHz C Block license, for a total of 12 megahertz, covering parts of two local market areas in Kansas and Oklahoma. Similar to a transaction the FCC approved earlier this week, the KanOkla spectrum buy will give AT&T control of more than one-third of the low-band spectrum in the stated areas. Even so, the FCC determined the transfer does not pose any competitive harm and will likely result in some benefits for consumers.

AT&T and KanOkla Telephone Association did not place a dollar value on the spectrum sale. Such transactions are common in the industry.
