They recently announced they will purchase T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom - worth $39 billion in cash & stock...!
AT&T has been pigeon-holed with having poor service and multiple dropped calls, but this new deal will greatly help its mission in delivering 4G LTE coverage and supporting 95% of the US population.... wow!
AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile USA provides an optimal combination of network assets to add capacity sooner than any alternative, and it provides an opportunity to improve network quality in the near term for both companies’ customers. In addition, it provides a fast, efficient and certain solution to the impending exhaustion of wireless spectrum in some markets, which limits both companies’ ability to meet the ongoing explosive demand for mobile broadband.Are you an iPhone owner signed with AT&T thinking about switching to Verizon? ...you may want to think again :)
