AT&T To Buy T-Mobile, Dramatic Boost in Android & 4G

AT&T announced today that it will buy T-Mobile from Deutche Telekom for $39 billion in both cash and stock. ┬áThis is one of the biggest mergers in the United States since the beginning of the financial crisis. ┬áNot will this deal dramatically boost AT&T’s 4G expansion efforts, but it will add an additional 46.5 million customers to the telecom giant. On top of the custom base and the 4G, T-Mobile was one of the leading telecoms to carry Android smartphones, which will now help contribute directly to AT&T’s bottom line.
