T-Mobile USA parent company Deutsche Telekom is considering merging its U.S. operations with pre-paid provider MetroPCS, reports Bloomberg. According to sources familiar with Deutsche Telekom's plans, the company may offer MetroPCS a stock swap in order to gain control of it and then merge the operations of the two firms. Bloomberg's sources also note that Deutsche Telekom is considering an IPO of such a merged entity, an outright sale of T-Mobile USA, and is also holding discussions with other companies. Deutsche Telekom's plans for T-Mobile USA, which has struggled to retain customers in recent quarters, have long garnered industry speculation. The FCC and DoJ blocked Deutsche Telekom's attempt to sell T-Mobile USA to U.S. rival AT&T last year.
