T-Mobile USA says it is the best solution

AT&T will retain talented people, says CEO
T-Mobile USA CEO Philipp Humm has sent an Email to employees trying to deal with the likely unexpected and unsettling news of the proposed T-Mobile USA purchase by AT&T. Sources tell us that in the Email Humm says that AT&T is committed to “…keeping talented people though the transition,” but it seems the T-Mobile employees we spoke with feel the situation is dicey, at best, for most employees to retain future employment with AT&T; they believe many job cuts are likely despite the fact that neither company has addressed this yet.

While it might be the best possible solution for the business and for the customers, it seems that not everyone agrees with this opinion. Some suggest that a combined AT&T and T-Mobile is just too huge and will create one company with too much control of the cell business in the United States. This could lead to some potential regulatory issues for the deal to overcome.

Of course, the big deal is believed to be the fact that the combined company can deliver a 4G solution to 95% of the population in the U.S. in a much faster time frame than either company could have achieved on its own. The broadband access will be appealing to some, as it will over time provide higher speed access to communities and places that are not covered by other options.

AT&T does have a good track record on successful mergers in this space; and it is likely that despite what many customers might think right now, the benefits will likely outweigh the potential negatives long-term. Still, there will be challenges such as T-Mobile’s lower prices on many plans and for data access that will need resolved. These are perhaps small things that happen in any combination of two companies, but the future could be very bright for T-Mobile customers as they will be able to take advantage of the expanded network and quality offered by AT&T’s existing network.
