"The bottom line is that Cingular and Verizon Wireless are pulling ahead
of their main rivals -- Sprint PCS, T-Mobile USA and Nextel -- in
amassing spectrum. That could give Cingular and Verizon Wireless a
critical edge in expanding its wireless data and Internet services and
in bringing those services to more customers, analysts say.


"It's pretty clear that Cingular and now Verizon Wireless, after the
NextWave deal, will have the most spectrum capacity,""

What you left out:

Janazzo says both Cingular and Verizon Wireless are well-positioned
in the top 50 U.S. markets. He says that on average, Cingular holds
58 megahertz of spectrum in the top 50, with Verizon Wireless next at
39 MHz after the NextWave deal closes.

That puts Cingular almost 50% ahead of Verizon, a huge advantage in capacity.

He pegs Sprint PCS at an average 25.5 MHz, T-Mobile USA at 24 MHz and
Nextel at 23.5 MHz. The Nextel tally assumes it resolves spectrum
issues with the Federal Communications Commission (news - web sites).

While the difference between 25 MHz and 23 is minor, a gap such as 25
to 39 or 58 is significant in reach and quality of service.

No, just capacity.
