T-Mobile not interested in buying Verizon spectrum: CEO

updated 01:44 pm EDT, Thu May 10, 2012

T-Mobile still opposed to Verizon spectrum buy, says Philipp Humm

T-Mobile CEO Philipp Humm went on record on Thursday to say the carrier isn't interested in acquiring Verizon's 700MHz spectrum if it can buy its own. During a conference call, SlashGear reported, Humm told investors and reporters that the 700MHz block C spectrum isn't enough for T-Mobile to expand its offerings. He added that incorporating it into its business and hardware would take between three to six years.

T-Mobile isn't a stranger to speak out against Verizon's plans, as it previously asked the FCC to block Verizon's buyout of prime AWS spectrum from cable companies. Smaller carriers such as T-Mobile and MetroPCS argue that Verizon isn't using its current spectrum to its fullest, and therefore shouldn't be allowed to buy out even more.

However, T-Mobile is planning on building out its own LTE services sometime in 2013.
