Must AT&T divest of wireless broadband?

One interesting thing that hasn't been covered about the AT&T-BellSouth merger is whether the combined company will have to divest its 2.3 GHz and 2.5 GHz spectrum holdings. We saw with the Sprint-Nextel merger that regulators allowed the carrier to keep its 2.5 GHz holdings on the condition it launches services in the band by 2009. How will AT&T be viewed? It certainly has a bigger range of broadband network offerings than Sprint Nextel.
