Map of T-Mobile's 700 MHz spectrum

The map below shows T-Mobile's 700 MHz A, B and C block licenses and leases (pink) and licenses pending FCC approval or sale closing (orange shaded). Officially announced markets where 700 MHz band 12 network has been deployed have a circled 12 placed on them. T-Mobile markets band 12 network as Extended Range LTE-700 MHz. The green circles are TV channel 51 stations protected by the FCC rules. A-block spectrum cannot be used in the green circles until the stations relocate to lower channels. Click on the stations in the green circles for more information. 

Questions about the licenses, devices, TV stations, and the 600 MHz auction? Ask /r/tmobile community. The binocular and circled "12" markers on the map do not represent actual coverage.
