T-Mobile and Sprint merger may be happening


Businessweek today published an article about how Deutsche Telekom, owner of T-Mobile USA, may be in talks with Sprint about a possible merger. This would create the first CDMA and GSM carrier, if the deal goes through and the networks decide to keep their separate technologies. 

The article also states that T-Mobile has been performing poorly for Deutsche Telekom and how they've decided that the carrier simply isn't viable enough for them to pour R&D money into anymore. 

In my opinion, a dual CDMA/GSM network would be fantastic for travelers, since they would get the best of both worlds . . . across the world.

  • It would also make a lot of sense for them to join forces to build a true LTE 4G network and not just the HSPA+ 4G that they are trying to pawn off on people now.

  • CDMA is rather insignificant standard on an international scale.
