AT&T Faces Penalty If T-Mobile Deal Falls Through

AT&T today outlined terms of its deal with Deutsche Telekom that would kick in if the deal to buy T-Mobile USA falls through, for example if the government nixes the deal or imposes terms unacceptable to AT&T. AT&T would owe T-Mobile $3 billion, plus the transfer of AWS spectrum licenses that are "not critical" to AT&T's initial LTE deployment, were it to go it alone. The company would also be required to accept a roaming deal for areas where AT&T provides coverage but T-Mobile does not, ensuring that T-Mobile's coverage will improve to match AT&T's whether the deal goes through or not.
