T-Mobile Completes MetroPCS Acquisition

T-Mobile Completes MetroPCS Acquisition

In late 2012, T-Mobile announced the acquisition of MetroPCS. This move was essentially a merger between the #4 and #5 cellular providers in the US. After several months of paperwork, they finally worked out all the details. The new stock, T-Mobile USA, begins trading today. It will be interesting to see how this merger affects the top 3 providers, Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. Can T-Mobile overcome Sprint?
