Upon closing of the spectrum deal, T-Mobile will have 700MHz A-block spectrum that covers all of the top 10 US markets and is capable of covering 269 million Americans, or 83 percent of the US population, with Extended Range LTE. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions and is expected to close in Q4.
