Verizon and T-Mobile will swap airwave licenses in 518 US counties covering about 133 cities and towns, according to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission. The exchange involves spectrum types known as advanced wireless service, or AWS, and high-band personal communications service, or PCS. The deal is about tidying up the carriers’ spectrum, so that their airwaves aren’t in scattered patches, said Walt Piecyk, an analyst with BTIG.
