T-Mobile USA parent company Deutsche Telekom has revealed the terms of the break-up fee owed to Deutsche Telekom now that it and AT&T have agreed to cease pursuing AT&T's proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA. AT&T has to pay Deutsche Telekom $3 billion in cash, which it will do by the end of the year. T-Mobile USA will be awarded with a large package of AWS mobile spectrum in 128 markets, including 12 of the top 20 markets in the U.S. (Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Washington, Boston, San Francisco, Phoenix, San Diego, Denver, Baltimore and Seattle). In addition to the spectrum, AT&T has agreed to sign a seven-year UMTS roaming agreement that gives T-Mobile USA a coverage boost from 230 million POPs to 280 million POPs. The roaming agreement gives T-Mobile a significantly larger service footprint for UMTS-based voice and data. Timing for the transfer of the AWS spectrum licenses wasn't disclosed.
