said by Beans:Very true at best TMO and Metro pcs may come to some agreement to use/share the same towers ( TMO antenna equipment on top and Metro pcs underneath or vice versa) this may actually avoid the need to "build" a new tower in many locations where its cost or municipality prohibitive , but there transmission technologies are worlds apart. these 2 companies will stay separate. said by Chaldo:
T-Mobile wants the spectrum and MetroPCS wants t-mobile to buy them out after, or roam, but most likely buy them out. Thats the deal.
2 different techs. TMo is gsm and metro is cdma, like Sprint and Nextel. I don't think that TMo wants to have the same exodus as Sprint did. They can't afford it.
