AT&T makes $600m total bid to buy NextWave Wireless for WCS spectrum

AT&T revealed it is pursuing buying NextWave Wireless, which holds Wireless Communication Services (WCS) and Advanced Wireless Service (AWS) spectrum. The purchase may prove especially lucrative for AT&T if the FCC approves a June submission to begin using WCS airwaves for mobile data. AT&T said the approval would allow it to begin rolling out WCS-enabled 4G LTE networks in about three years.
