What’s going to happen to T-Mobile USA now that AT&T had dropped out of the merger that almost everyone was against? If this$39 billion deal went through, AT&T would have the largest spectrum for a cell phone provider without doing any work. AT&T thought that all of this was too much just to easily get out of expanding and configuring new spectrum for their 4G Lte network. People were thinking that it was the only way for T-Mobile to go without filing for bankruptcy, but they had a little something on the side from AT&T if the deal didn’t go through.
The deal was that if the merger didn’t go through, AT&T would have to give spectrum to T-Mobile panning across 128 major markets, plus they signed on a roaming agreement increasing T-Mobile’s coverage from 230 million people to 280 million people. On top of that, AT&T has to pay them $3 billion by the end of the year. Seems like AT&T messed this one up. T-Mobile, seems like it’s going to use that money to pay off the growing debt they have and use to expand there very exceptional HSPA+ network.
If T-Mobile plays their cards right, we might see a T-Mobile comeback and a strong competition between the top four mobile carriers. The one thing I love about T-Mobile is that they offer great plans, with unlimited service and a great variety of Android phones. So if you’re tired of paying so much for just regular service, T-Mobile seems like a great option.
