Verizon and Straight Path have not commented yet, however, last month AT&T said it was planning to use the company’s millimeter-wave (mmWave) spectrum to “accelerate the delivery of new experiences for consumers and businesses like virtual and augmented reality, telemedicine, autonomous cars, smart cities and more.” At the time it said “AT&T will acquire 735 mmWave licenses in the 39 GHz band and 133 licenses in the 28 GHz band. These licenses cover the entire United States, including all of the top 40 markets.”

Update: A Verizon representative declined to comment on the report.
