I was slightly shocked to see the news that AT&T is looking to acquire T-Mobile for $39 billion, but it does make sense. T-Mobile lags behind all others in the US and has been looking for a buyer for years now. AT&T has cash and wants to keep the pressure on Verizon. Both AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM, so it make sense from a tech standpoint too. Of course it will need to be approved by various government regulators before anything can happen, but I don’t see that being a problem. If AT&T acquires T-Mobile, where does that leave Sprint? I think that’s the biggest question. Does Verizon look to snatch them up?
At least we can look forward to months and months of jokes about how two bad cell companies don’t make a good one.
