AT&T to Buy T-Mobile USA for About $39B

AT&T Inc said on Sunday it would buy Deutsche Telekom AG's T-Mobile USA, in a $39 billion cash-and-stock transaction that would create a new industry behemoth by combining two of the four largest U.S. wireless carriers.

The purchase price includes a cash payment of $25 billion with the balance to be paid using AT&T common stock. AT&T has the right to increase the cash portion of the purchase price by up to $4.2 billion.

Dupa ce au pierdut exclusivitatea cu Apple, cei de la AT&T dau din nou lovitura. Cum sunt unul dintre clientii T-Mobile USA,stirea este interesanta . Sunt curioasa ce fel de schimbari va aduce aceasta achizitie pentru noi,clientii T-Mobile. Sincer, am fost foarte multumita cu serviciile lor pana acum.Iar preturile sunt decente.Acum!
But...if you think TMobile's rates will remain low I have a nice bridge to sell you in San Francisco. Cheap! :)

EDIT:T-Mobile issued a statement regarding the acquisition.In the statement they gave a few of the common questions they were asked and answer to them regarding the buy out. You can check it out here:

A couple thoughts -
How could T-Mobile possibly be worth $39 Billion? Deutsche Telekom is only worth $59 Billion and the majority of their value is in Europe (hence the name).
Let's hope that they ditch T-Mobile's crap network, but keep their amazingly customer-friendly policies. They are definitely the nicest phone company by far.
