AT&T's spectrum purchase

Showing that a secondary market does, in fact, exist in spectrum (even if it is "lumpy" and very thinly traded), AT&T purchased spectrum at 700MHz. So, it is interesting to speculate about AT&T might use this spectrum.

GSM-based systems are currently not designed for 700MHz ... so do you think this is for WiMAX? Is AT&T's recent spectrum purchase like an option on a future WiMAX network?
