    Does DirectTV own any spectrum that AT&T would gain?

    I haven't read anything into this other than headlines. If I had to guess, this is entry into a new media market, not bandwidth.

    Nationwide footprint with satellite TV beyond their smaller U-Verse coverage. And Sunday Ticket.

    They say this buy would improve the data for at&t cause the bandwidth would be over satellite . so I think at&t and cricket and a few other carriers that support at&t bands would have a faster 4g so looks like gsm would have a plus on one end. I think T-Mobile may have to see the door hit them in the a*s when I drop them cause these prices are killing the pockets. :what::D. And I feel sorry for Netflix . hmmmmmm watch look and learn as this makes a fool of them.:eek:
