Speaking to CNN on Tuesday, AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega said that the company's wireless network will face major problems in the short term if it can't begin to integrate T-Mobile's network into its own. He said, "With this deal, we're set. One of the key drivers (for the deal) was the need for additional spectrum. It resolves the pending spectrum challenges that we're facing in major cities." de la Vega didn't specify exactly what problems its network will face without T-Mobile, but it did say that it will make use of T-Mobile's 1700MHz AWS spectrum for LTE. Earlier this week, AT&T proposed to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion.
