T-Mobile USA sets its own course as 'un-carrier'

Wednesday 27 March 2013 | 15:28 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
T-Mobile USA has made a big step forward in its strategy. After its proposed merger with AT&T was blocked by regulators, the mobile operator is moving ahead with its own plans. It's helped by the spectrum and break-up fee it received from the AT&T deal. The planned merger with MetroPCS will also provide a boost, making the number four on the US mobile market (after AT&T, Verizon and Sprint) a good bit stronger.
