AT&T and Deutsche Telekom have reached a $39 billion deal for AT&T to purchase T-Mobile USA. The companies cite spectrum and capacity issues as the primary reasons for merging. The new AT&T plans to deploy LTE 4G technology to 95 percent of the population. The transaction is expected to close in approximately 12 months, pending regulatory approval. The deal combines AT&T's 96 million subscribers with T-Mobile's 34 million for a total of 130 million subscribers. Both companies use GSM and HSPA+ technology, making the network integration easier from a technology angle.
