I believe it's the other way around. MetroPCS will be acquiring T-Mobile, but they are going with the GSM network like you said.
I hear it won't be until at least 2014 (maybe end of...?) when they've really consolidated the networks.
Could someone in the SF/Oakland area please give me an idea of what kind of speeds I'd get if I were to switch over to Metro? Currently on TMO's 100 min prepaid plan, but unlimited everything doesn't sound half bad!!! How're the non-4G speeds after 250mb?
Some of you are half retarded and can't even read the slashgear article.
T-mobile is buying metropcs. Period.
T-mobile will continue to be T-mobile
MetroPCS customers will become T-mobile customers
MetroPCS will be no more
Current MetroPCS stockholders will hold 26% stock in t-mobile USA and get $1.5billion cash for their stock.
This is called a reverse merger because instead of t-mobile buying all the stock and keeping the metropcs brand they are destroying the brand and giving metropcs stockholders stock in t-mobile.
