Deutsche Telekom is thinking about merging T-Mobile USA with Sprint. Bloomberg Businessweek is reporting that Deutsche Telekom has began talking about selling off T-Mobile USA to Sprint. Deutsche Telekom will have a major stake in the combined company if the deal does go through. T-Mobile USA and Sprint are the third and fourth largest wireless provides behind AT&T and Verizon.
The iPhone has played a major role in the downfall of both T-Mobile and Sprint. AT&T has stolen many customers from both Sprint and T-Mobile, and now that Verizon has the iPhone as well we may see even more customers jump ship.
T-Mobile has also been in talks of buying out the 4G Clearwire spectrum. We will keep you posted as I know many of you are on T-Mobile as well as myself.
