OMG .. AT&T agrees to buy T-Mobile USA for US$ 39 Billion …

By: t-marco March 20th, 2011

AT&T will create the largest Wireless carrier in the USA after merging with T-Mobile USA ….if regulators approve this deal. AT&T has just announced that it will acquire T-Mobile USA from parent company Deutsche Telekom in a cash and stock deal worth approximately $39 billion. AT&T will have 130 million customers after the regulatory approval. The current leading wireless carrier, Verizon Wireless, has anywhere from 94 to 102 million

Even if regulators don’t buy its arguments, AT&T may walk away with a concession prize. If the deal gets squelched, the carrier will pay T-Mobile a $3 billion break-up fee. That’s not a huge amount for a company with a $165 billion market capital.

Good sources indicate that Deutsche Telekom is looking other horizons to make business. Looking more South West. Yes South America. Sources indicate that Deutsche Telekom is already evaluating enter to Colombia, Peru or Chile.
