Yeah; I saw this went to conference (Investor conference) yesterday pre-noon, so it seems to be a done deal. Where ATT swallowing T-MOUS was a bad thing I see this as good because it does several things. First up Metro focuses on metro areas or has so they have LTE existing now in most major cities which also happen to be the highest profit margin areas for a communications company like these two. I know the dropped 4G LTE here several months back and it is a standard for them so now that will be true for T-MOUS or at least as soon as this gets approved.
As far as approval this is the third and fourth place players in the market not the 2nd and 4th (which combined would have then been the largest provider nationwide) so I see this one as just floating through. I am a T-MOUS customer and Metro PCS is also widely available here in Atlanta so it just doubles my connection points and ads existing LTE and CDMA to it as well. I saw several people saying this would not work because there CDMA but they do not see what T-MOUS is doing here which is jump starting there 4G LTE and adding to their customer base.
It will be interesting to watch but I am thinking there going to be in a close race with SPRINT and SPRINT's FInancials have not looked great since the NEXTEL deal which was years ago so over all this might hurt SPRINT. I wonder if there going to keep one name, make a new name, or keep both and just be combined in the background technically?
Go T-METRO lol!!!!!
