Sale ! Sale ! T-Mobile for Sale !… Google may buy it

By: t-marco February 5th, 2010
T-Mobile is the 4th largest mobile operator in the U.S., far behind AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint in terms of subscribers.
I’ve been a T-Mobile subscriber for the past 8 years, and in my opinion they have excellent service (voice and data) and being a GSM operator you can travel internationally without having to switch phones – a nice perk.
Deutsche Telekom may launch an initial public offering (IPO) for the US wireless unit, according to a Wall Street. The German Company has negotiated with banks including Deutsche Bank to manage the IPO. A decision is expected in the next few months. However, company officials declined to comment on the issue.
As Google makes further inroads into the telecom industry with Google Voice, and devices such as the Nexus One, they are in direct competition with the U.S. wireless operators.
But Why Google?
Because the major cable companies have already invested with Sprint-Clearwire venture. They offer the cable customers 4G. If one of them bought T-Mobile, it would be hard to integrate with the current 4G technology (WiMax). This would likely rule out the cable companies.
With Google Voice and now the Nexus One,  like it or not Google is becoming a telecom operator. Perhaps their relationships with carriers will go the way of their relationship with Apple…friends first, now direct competitors .
We just hope that Google, if buys T-Mobile, to continues the good costumer service, great deal and cheap plans.
We just need to wait to see that is gonna happen.

    I guess this could be good for T-Mobile. As stated above, as long as they continue to have great customer service. If Google buys T-Mobile, this could improve the handsets. Things would also be a little more personal with its customers. T-Mobile would no longer be the red headed step child of Deutsche Telekom. It would now be someones priority. I like this idea.

    I hope that if Google does buy T-Mobile, Google maintains T-MO's level of customer service. I would hate to see Google take the T-MO customer service level down to their Nexus One Customer Service Level……… That would be ZERO.
