The acquisition of T-Mobile would make AT&T the largest carrier in the U.S. The company (AT&T) says the merger is necessary to accommodate the heavy data demands of its subscribers, and will also create jobs and bring coverage to rural areas. However, while AT&T might claim to have more states supporting it, most of the highly populated US states such as California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania are against the deal. The large numbers of consumers in those states are likely to hold some sway with the DoJ.
T-Mobie also released a new statement assuring that the deal will pass and the new T-Mobile will be part of AT&T.
If regulators reject the deal, AT&T must pay $3 billion to T-Mobile owner Deutsche Telekom as part of its pre-nup agreement with the wireless network. The carrier must also give T-Mobile free spectrum in some regions and reduce charges for T-Mobile customers who make calls to AT&T subscribers

Sprint, the third-biggest U.S. wireless operator, announced on Tuesday that it has filed a lawsuit with a federal court in the U.S. District of Columbia in an effort to block AT&T’s planned $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom.
Sprint Vice Presidente of Litigation Susan Z. Haller said: “Sprint opposes AT&T’s proposed takeover of T-Mobile. With today’s legal action, we are continuing that advocacy on behalf of consumers and competition, and expect to contribute our expertise and resources in proving that the proposed transaction is illegal.”

According with the Bloomberg report, AT&T defends its position of acquire T-Mobile USA will increase competition, improved voice and date and will bring iPhone 4 to the 39 million T-Mobile customers.
“This transaction is very instrumental,” Stephenson said. “Virtually on the day you close the deal, getting a 30 percent lift in capacity in New York City: that’s a significant improvement in call quality and data throughput.”
“This is an intensely competitive industry,” he said. “It is intense before we do this transaction, it will be intense after we do this transaction.”
AT&T said on March 20 it had agreed to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom AG, in a deal that would combine the second- and fourth-largest U.S. wireless operators to create the country’s largest. The acquisition, which would leave three major national wireless players including Verizon Wireless and Sprint Nextel Corp., is subject to regulatory approval.
Sprint, the third-largest U.S. wireless provider, said March 28 it would seek to have the deal blocked by U.S. agencies. The transaction is anti-competitive and would result in an industry dominated by two carriers, the company said.

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.

The next generation iPad is suppose to arrive early next next, maybe Q1 2011. The new iPad model will run on both the GSM and CDMA based networks around the globe. This would allow the iPad to pick up 3G connectivity with virtually every major phone carrier here in the US, Europe, South America, and Asia
No wonder Rupert Murdoch is teaming up with Apple for an iPad only newspaper called Daily. At only $0.99 cents a week, the global reach of the Daily could be substantial.
Anyway, the next generation iPad with its CDMA and GSM will be capable of running off the 3G networks of T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, here within the United States.
