TSTAR 600, Jackson, MS, was formed to bid on and acquire radio frequency spectrum licenses in the 600 MHz band to be auctioned in the Forward Auction by the FCC in 2017. In the auction, the company successfully bid on and won 600MHz licenses in major metro markets including Phoenix, Sacramento, San Antonio, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Nashville and New Orleans. TSTAR is actively seeking additional licenses in the 600 MHz band. The licenses will ultimately be repurposed for broadband data usage. In 2018, TSTAR acquired seven additional 600 MHz licenses from AT&T including the Las Vegas, NV and Birmingham, AL markets. TSTAR now has 600 MHz licenses covering nearly 30 million people.
