T-Mobile, MetroPCS in Merger Talks: Bloomberg – Mobile and Wireless – News & Reviews – eWeek.com

T-Mobile, with $4 billion in the bank and new spectrum, is a different company than it was when AT&T tried to buy it last year. However, the carrier still needs to grow, and it’s reportedly in talks with MetroPCS.

T-Mobile and MetroPCS, the nation’s fourth- and fifth-largest carriers, respectively, are discussing a merger, Bloomberg reported May 10, citing people familiar with the matter. The deal could entail an outright sale of T-Mobile or a stock swap that would give T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom control over the combined carriers.
