AT&T and Deutsche Telekom AG has announced an agreement under which AT&T will acquire T-Mobile USA in return of a cash-and-stock transaction at approximately $39 billion.
Sprint was another buyer of T-Mobile but AT&T won the war and this will bring the combined user base to 130 million leaving AT&T to be the only national carrier GSM in the US.
It will take about 12 months to get things on track after AT&T and T-Mobile deal. To know further details you can read the full press release at the source.
