Verizon will pay a bill of $3.1 billion to Straight Path Communication for Spectrum Wireless holder. The news got confirmation today and now Verizon will also work for nationwide 5G just as T-mobile is already doing. According to The Wall Street Journal, AT&T wants to get the spectrum and offered $1.6 billion on stock but the giant communication company beat AT&T after “an unusually intense bidding war” between both.
