The company also claims that the low-band spectrum it bought should be clear of the congestion that can be found on spectrum that's bought and used by the networks of AT&T and Verizon Wireless. "Congratulations to the FCC!" said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. There are still plenty of spaces where T-Mobile doesn't have great coverage, but once they get their 600MHz spectrum rolled out, there will be even less.

Low-band frequencies, like this 600Mhz spectrum and the 700Mhz spectrum that was auctioned off in 2008, are considered the "beachfront" property of LTE, since it carriers high-speed signals further distances, with better penetration of thick walls and basements than mid-high frequencies, which is where T-Mobile now deploys the fast majority of its LTE network. With this purchase, T-Mobile now has significantly more low-band spectrum per customer than any other major provider and almost TRIPLE the low-band spectrum per customer than Verizon.
Almost a year after it began, the major auction in the US has been concluded: T-Mobile US was able to secure important spectrum in the two-stage procedure.
