ATT is going to lay everyone off!!!
Spoke to a buddy who works in a NOC and they've already received their letters advising them of their choices.
1. Quit now and get $1500 in two payments.
2. Ride it out until the end, same $1500 + severance package. Example $26k for 9 years of service.
Apparently ATT is going to sell all T-Mobiles assets to 3rd world countries, towers, antennas, etc.
All ATT wants and needs is T-Mobile frequencies!
He did say obviously some will keep their jobs but it won't be many.
And this buyout is going to spur the economy how? Oh that's right dump how many more job seekers into an already crowded job market.
All ATT needs to roll out 4G is T-Mobile's spectrum.
All employees where he works have already been put on notice.
who is he?
AT&T does want t-mobile's people, and towers.
Why? ATT already has more coverage than TMO and if all you need is spectrum why would they need more employees.
With the TMO commercials and new devices coming, it's like business as usual.
But behind the curtains there already making preparations for the buyout.
coverage is great but spectrum is even better. the more spectrum you have the better you are. not sure if you saw the url for the combined AT&t/tmobile spectrum holdings per county but its a lot. avg is 150-180mhz.
"With the TMO commercials and new devices coming, it's like business as usual.

right on the first part, wrong on the second part. they cannot make preparings for the buyout. its not even approved. please man.
Please stop spreading lies about things you know nothing about.
Someone has to conduct business for tmobile until the deal is completed. Thats what a retention bonus is for an "incentive to finish the job". The tmobile employees are going to get laid off
The point is that these employees now know they'll be out of a job in the near future. Do they ride it out or get out there in the job market before the local market is flooded with telcom employees?
