AT&T-Mobile: AT&T buys T-Mobile USA for $39B





AT&T announced that the new entity would be the biggest in the US with 130 million subscribers.




The national mobile carrier choices for US consumers will decrease by one if the purchase of Deutsche Telekom AG's U.S. T-Mobile unit by AT&T (T) passes regulatory hurdles. The $39 billion deal, announced ahead of a major wireless conference in Orlando tomorrow, would create the nation's largest wireless carrier and drop the big US mobile carriers to just three.
Charles Golvin from Forrester Research said of the deal:
"AT&T's acquisition of T-Mobile, if approved, brings good news and bad news. The good news: high-speed mobile broadband service will improve in quality and coverage, including — in the long run — those in rural communities outside the reach of terrestrial broadband today. The bad news: the cost of that service won't come down nearly as fast as customers would like, since AT&T and Verizon Wireless combined would own nearly three out of every four wireless subscriptions in the US. While clearly troublesome for Sprint and other mobile smaller mobile competitors, It's also bad news for cable operators, whose incipient mobility products will suffer in comparison to what AT&T and Verizon can offer."

    LOL. 🤬 . I wudda went with Sprit but they was charging you an extra $10 for 4G and the blackberry unlimited plan wasn't included in their data plan. My wife has a corporate perks discount with Tmobile so we got the same play Sprint was offering with Tmobile for less because of the discount on the bill.

    I'm on ATT and I think this sucks. The prices are high enough as it is. Now this gives them a reason to increase them even more. Man I really don't wanna have to go back to Sprint. Screw this, I'm taking my talents to Cricket Wireless!

    Why would you try to get a data plan for an Iphone when you're a t mobile customer?
