Nortex buys 700 MHz license from Verizon Wireless

Wednesday 14 November 2012 | 20:54 CET | News
Texas-based telecom operator Nortex Communications has signed an agreement to acquire the Texas RSA 6-Jack 700 MHz lower B-block license from Verizon Wireless, subject to FCC approval. The license covers a four-county area northwest of Dallas. The sale is in line with Verizon Wireless' strategy to sell its lower 700 MHz licenses. Although the sale to Nortex is the first to be signed as a result of the announced sale process, Verizon Wireless previously sold 24 of its lower 700 MHz spectrum licenses to seven different telecommunications companies operating in thirteen states.
