Under the deal, Sprint would pay around $40 a share for T-Mobile during the summer time. The deal would be roughly 50% cash and 50% stock. T-Mobile's largest shareholder, Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG, would retain a stake of 15% to 20% in the new company.

Does AT&T have a freeze on wireline and wireless capital expenditures?

by: William Neilson JrJune 4, 2014
MKM Partners on Tuesday put out a research note suggesting that AT&T has a temporary freeze on many wireline and wireless capex (capital expenditures) projects. This would run counter to previous suggestions that in 2014, AT&T would decrease wireline capex projects while increasing wireless capex projects (and overall stay flat between the two). One of the few projects that seems to have survived this freeze is called Project Stream.

Do we really know what 5G technology means for consumers?

by: William Neilson JrJune 3, 2014
Back in October of 2010, the ITU declared that LTE technology wasn't technically "4G," and that no major wireless carrier was technically deploying 4G networks. According to the ITU, only technology like LTE-Advanced, capable of speeds over 100 Mbps, could be considered 4G. Carriers ignored the declaration with T-Mobile arguing their HSPA+ build was the "largest 4G network," and Sprint & Verizon also made "4G" part of marketing for their respective LTE networks (technically, LTE and Mobile WiMax).

Broadband investment continues to decline

by: William Neilson JrMay 21, 2014
Just last week, this site discussed how AT&T and Comcast were basically threatening the FCC and general public that if their companies were to be reclassified under Title II, suddenly their investments and deployment would slow down if not stop! In fact, there is little if any truth to these statements by the cable/broadband giants. In fact, as Matthew Yglesias of Vox.com points out, these companies are actually DECREASING how much they spend on infrastructure investment over the last five years.
