T-Mobile Calling for Help with 4G Push
May 5, 2010, 8:07 AM by Philip Berne
The Financial Times is reporting that Deutsche Telekom, which owns T-Mobile USA, is looking into forming a partnership with a third-party high-speed network provider. Specifically, the New York hedge fund Harbinger Capital was named. Harbinger Capital owns wireless spectrum suitable for an LTE network. The group also announced plans for a 4G network that uses satellite technology to cover much more ground than ground radios. T-Mobile is reportedly exploring a wholesale networking deal to buy coverage from Harbinger, and this will be Harbinger's preferred way of doing business, says FT. Until the network rolls out, T-Mobile is hoping its current 3G network will satisfy customers for at least the next two years.
