Overland Park, Kan. and and Redmond, Wash. -- Sprint and AT&T Wireless (NYSE: AWE) today announced the completion of an equal exchange of certain 10 MHz blocks of PCS spectrum in major U.S. markets under an agreement announced by both companies in November 2000. The spectrum exchanged covers approximately 18.5 million potential customers, or "licensed POPs," for each company. As a result of the exchange, AT&T Wireless acquired additional spectrum in San Francisco, Calif.; Seattle, Wash.; West Palm Beach, Fla.; Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Austin, Texas; Salt Lake City, Utah and San Luis Obispo, Calif. In return, Sprint received spectrum for Atlanta, Ga.; Houston, Texas; Charlotte, N.C; Raleigh, N.C.; Greensboro, N.C.; Memphis, Tenn.; Santa Fe, N.M. and Cleveland, Ohio.

"Once again, AT&T Wireless has leveraged its rich portfolio of spectrum," said AT&T Wireless Chairman and CEO John D. Zeglis. "By exchanging spectrum we could spare in certain areas, we've nicely bolstered our capacity in important 3G markets in the U.S. This was an extremely capital efficient way to further enhance our spectrum position as we continue a fast-paced deployment of our global-standard, next-generation 3G network."

"The exchange of spectrum further strengthens Sprint's unprecedented licensed PCS coverage," said Charles E. Levine, president of Sprint's PCS division. "Combined with the advantages of a single-frequency CDMA platform, the strengthening of our PCS-licensed footprint places Sprint in an even better position to deliver the clarity and benefits of 3G services nationwide this summer."
