said by trebzon:This could turn out to be a good thing definitely. MetroPcs already has LTE in all of their markets. Switch the Mpcs subs to T-mo phones and operate the same way as they do now. With the very limited footprint and 9mil subs this could be a big hit with a semi-nationwide one.
This could be an interesting development though. T-Mobile's network is not the prize of prizes but MetroPCS' prepaid offerings (probably the most recognizable in that space in the US) will still benefit from that access without a toll to get on. I can definitely see this being a good thing for both organization. Besides, anything that adds any sense of competition to the duopoly that is Verizon and AT&T is a good thing.
