T-Mobile/MetroPCS merger could spur VoLTE innovation – FierceBroadbandWireless

T-Mobile USA’s acquisition of MetroPCS (NYSE:PCS) has the potential to bring about technological innovations in the U.S. mobile marketplace and accelerate the deployment of advanced services, according to analysts.

Spectrum and LTE are keys to the merger’s success and future potential. “We will increase our contiguous spectrum for LTE by 40 percent by the end of 2013,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere, noting the combined company will be able to offer 20×20 MHz LTE in many metro areas. The operators have complementary 1900 MHz and AWS spectrum holdings.
