WASHINGTON, August 27, 2010 - Sprint Nextel has announced that it will purchase 10 megahertz of spectrum from Wirefree Partners. The spectrum will span 16 markets including Austin, Texas as well as Seattle and Cincinnati.

Sprint will pay upward of $105 million for the spectrum in the 1900 MHz band.

Wirefree obtained the spectrum in 2005 and deployed a network in 2008 but was never able to establish a successful business with it.
