They're buying it for the prepaid brand, the customers (and the employees and infrastructure to support them,) and the radio spectrum.

Naturally they will seek a unified network of compatible technology, as with all mobile network mergers. Cricket - like all CDMA carriers - is moving from CDMA to LTE. Their plan was to dump CDMA eventually anyway. So AT&T will do with Cricket exactly what T-Mobile is doing with Metro, and simply accelerate the shutdown of CDMA, focusing on LTE instead.
