T-Mobile is currently already completing a merger with Metro PCS. However, they are still looking for more deals to help them catch up with rivals. Even with the merger to Metro PCS, they still trail to Verizon Wireless, AT&T Inc. and Sprint in customer numbers. T-Mobile is pursuing more agreements with virtual mobile operators, which offer services on other operators’ networks.
If T-Mobile continues to merge with more and more companies, this could drive down competition rate in the mobile industry. This could have a huge effect on the mobile world as we know it.
