T-Mobile US inks deal to access 600 MHz band in Texas

Wednesday 14 March 2018 | 16:06 CET | News
T-Mobile US and NBC's NBC 5/KXAS-TV station have signed a deal to accelerate the repacking of the station's 600 MHz spectrum in North Texas and surrounding areas. NBC 5/KXAS-TV, which serves the Dallas/Fort-Worth area, will move to its new frequency in late May, more than a year earlier than the FCC deadline of 21 June 2019. The deal means the station will be able to transition to its new frequency and maximize its coverage area sooner than expected, and that T-Mobile US will be able to up its LTE coverage and capacity in the area more quickly.
