Companies who do not have a lot of spectrum try to do their best that they can with expanding the best way they know how. DT’s focus shifted a few times within the past 10-20 years of what they wanted to do with T-Mobile USA (Voice Stream), While AT&T and Verizon Wireless didn’t have a different focus. Look at the spending habits between AT&T, VZW and T-Mobile USA, you will see that AT&T and VZW outspend T-Mobile USA in every way. There is a reason why T-Mobile USA offers their customers a value proposition while customers at AT&T and Verizon offer a premium proposition. I should know. I used to work for AT&T. I saw what was going on first hand with their billing. I know what goes on in VZW, Sprint and T-Mobile.

T-Mobile has started to expand by purchasing Metro PCS which will help them in rural markets and add subscribers but most importantly spectrum. They have a lot of funds and spectrum from the failed merger in which they are going to be using to purchase upcoming spectrum, maybe another tie-up with a company, and releasing more spectrum to use HSPA+ and LTE. Maybe a merger with Sprint might happen as you never know. I think this will be passed without any issues. With their 2.5 GHz and other spectrum holdings it could be a good thing, although you saw the failures with the Nextel/Sprint merger and now Softbank has to basically save Sprint’s life and business. Clearwire is suffering as well.

All I am saying is that the companies who have big resources and a clear vision get to be able to do whatever they want, while companies like Sprint and T-Mobile have limited abilities. With the correct vision and support by their partners, T-Mobile should be very successful as people who basically pay much more for their bill at AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will start to realize this and flock to T-Mobile in droves.
