AT&T is looking to sell off what appears to be nearly $1 billion worth
of 600 MHz spectrum after locking up all 50 states to its FirstNet
offering last week.

Just what will become of those airwaves is far from clear, however.

The nation's No. 2 mobile network operator filed a document with the
FCC indicating it would transfer its 600 MHz holdings to LB License
Company, an affiliate of Columbia Capital, a Beltway-area venture firm
focused on telecom and media. While the filing doesn't disclose terms
of the deal, the website Facticia earlier this week reported LB
Spectrum Holdings planned to raise $928 million. AT&T's full FCC
filing is available at the bottom of this article.
