AWS would gain popularity in Americas even more

Not only does Verizon's deal with the cable companies bring it new AWS spectrum, it also paves the way for T-Mobile to acquire significant AWS spectrum holdings from Verizon in a separate transaction. "As a result, Verizon and T-Mobile can soon apply 152 AWS licenses toward nationwide build-out and support of LTE services, providing more incentive and confidence for silicon, device and infrastructure suppliers to invest more aggressively in AWS support on LTE equipment," said a new Current Analysis report, which Westfall coauthored.

Further, upcoming AWS auctions are designated in Latin American countries such as Colombia, Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina, and Peru, complementing current AWS support in the United States, Canada and Chile. Consequently, AWS has become "an essential LTE band for LTE roaming support in North America and Latin America, advancing AWS as a solid candidate for one of the essential seven or eight LTE bands deemed critical for global roaming LTE devices and services," said the Current Analysis report.
