T-Mobile and SunCom today announced the completion of T-Mobile's acquisition of SunCom. SunCom had 1.1 million customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Retards...

Maybe they should have invested in growing existing markets rather than spending money in an unknown market. BUILD MORE TOWERS!
With this new market t-mo is adding 400 new towers by this fall in the south and now has coverage in st.thomas and st.john....

Just an FYI:

T-Mobile is in fact building more towers in existing markets. They built 20 towers in Nov/Dec in just Phoenix, AZ alone.

Also Im sure the millions of people in the SE states are not "unknown" markets, now T-Mobile has the ability to...

the Suncom can fill up the black hole in Carolinas and PR
T-Mobile builds a couple thousand towers each year, they cost about $250K to $300K each, so you're complaining about what?

Amen! I had a stable bill when I was with them, but they just don't work where I moved to (Mesa, Arizona).

T-Mobile Coverage

T-Mobile is GREATLY expanding coverage this year in many major markets, plus 3G is beginning to be firmed up.

Of course none of it can be discussed until it is officially confirmed but with the addition of HotSpot @ Home II and 3G, plus what they plan to roll out in terms of regular Hot Spot handsets is unbelievable. In short......

Game ON!

Finally T-mobile in PR

The trifecta is complete. Puerto Rico now has native signal (non-roaming) for all major US carrier T-mobile, AT&T, Spring and Verizon (via some weird agreement with Claro Wireless, formerly Verizon).

Not that I have T-mobile, but unlocked GSM phones rock.

New Company for some Residents

Now, for some residents, AT&T Wireless was sold to Cingular, Cingular sold portions of that network to SunCom, and now SunCom is sold to T-Mobile.

Interesting to think about how some customers may see sales, mergers, and acquisitions in this industry.
