Deutsche Telekom and MetroPCS Announce Merger (Phone Scoop)
totally contradicts this one:
MetroPCS Subscriber? What the T-Mobile Merger Means to You | News & Opinion | PCMag.com
the PCmag article seems to be based on the assumption that Tmobile USA is purchasing metroPCS. the phone scoop article states the opposite. according to the phonescoop article Deusche telekom and metroPCS are(or have) worked out a deal where metroPCS is purchasing Tmobile USA.
according to the phonescoop article tmobile isnt making any moves in this deal. this is between DT and metro in how they're gonna divvy up tmobile USA and how Dt wants to give up ownership of tmobile.
metro is not being bought or sold, Tmobile USA is.
quote from the phonescoop article:
The transaction would be a reverse merger, wherein the smaller MetroPCS will acquire the larger T-Mobile USA. Deutsche Telekom would then have time to reduce its ownership of the firm through gradual equity sales rather than all at once. Initially, Deutsche Telekom will own 74% of the merged entity and MetroPCS will own 26%.
