T-Mobile US plans to buy UScellular’s wireless operations and about 30% of the smaller operator’s spectrum assets across multiple bands. This move takes the last of the large, regional U.S. operators out of the retail wireless business and turns it into a wireless infrastructure company.

T-Mo will buy the spectrum, UScellular’s subscribers, operations and network assets except for the company’s owned towers.
