T-Mobile partners with Fox TV's WWOR to move spectrum frequencies faster, for less

Wednesday 11 October 2017 | 08:12 CET | News
T-Mobile US entered into a partnership with Fox Television Stations (FTS) to assist the US broadcaster in repacking its 600 MHz spectrum. The support will help FTS accelerate the final repack by 16 months and reduce overall costs for the Incentive Auction Relocation fund by tens of millions. As part of the agreement, WWOR-TV will repack in early 2018, over a year sooner than the originally proposed FCC deadline of August 2019, and will do it for much less.
