T-Mobile today announced that it has purchased 10 MHz of Advanced Wireless Services in order to boost its bandwidth position as it prepares to deploy 4G LTE in the Mississippi Valley region. Here's a list of some of the areas that will benefit from the purchase.
MetroPCS and T-Mobile are now one. Following approval from the necessary U.S. government regulators, shareholders of MetroPCS voted in favor of merging with the U.S. subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom.
The T-Mobile-MetroPCS planned merger has faced so much opposition from major shareholders that T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom has submitted a new offer in order to gain approval, and that has caused MetroPCS to push back the stockholder vote that was to decide the matter tomorrow.
MetroPCS today announced a new Android device to its 4G LTE portfolio. Continuing its trend of low-price midrange smartphones, the new Huawei Premia 4G joins the network for the low price of $149 without contract.
T-Mobile and MetroPCS have gained the approval of both the U.S. Department of Justice and the FCC for their proposed merger to form one company. Now only one major step remains.
MetroPCS and T-Mobile are on track to gain government for their proposed merger, but the companies will still need MetroPCS stockholders to approve the deal. In anticipation of an April 12 vote on the matter, MetroPCS has sent a letter urging stockholders to approve the deal.
The proposed reverse merger between T-Mobile USA and MetroPCS won't be opposed by the Department of Justice. The review period for the DOJ to attempt to block the merger has passed, leaving only a few more steps for the deal to be finalized.
MetroPCS is pushing the boundaries of the type of smartphone people expect to find on the budget carrier, especially when one considers that the newly announced LG Spirit 4G Android smartphone costs only $199.
MetroPCS has revised its calling plan options to include a streamlined approach with fewer stipulations. The fifth-place carrier has adopted three-tiers of plans that provide varying degrees of access to its 4G LTE network.
In what could be its final year as an independent company if its merger with T-Mobile USA is approved by the U.S. government, fifth-place carrier MetroPCS lost nearly half a million customers in 2012.
