T-Mobile swaps spectrum with Leap Wireless, aims for better coverage
T-Mobile has announced a swap spectrum with regional carrier Leap Wireless as both carriers try to improve their coverage across regions. The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

It basically boils down to the two carriers receiving spectrum in some regions. T-Mobile is getting additional spectrum and better coverage in:

- Alabama, 
- Illinois, 
- Missouri, 
- Minnesota, 
- Wisconsin.

Leap Wireless is receiving spectrum in:

- Phoenix, 
- Houston, 
- Galveston, 
- Bryan College Station.

The spectrum alignment should also be seen from the viewpoint of LTE expansion. T-Mobile needs that additional spectrum to deploy an LTE network in the future.
