T-Mobile Aquiring MetroPCS

The German-owned T-Mobile phone carrier is moving to acquire smaller MetroPCS, subject to the usual approvals and scrutiny. While it makes sense on some level for the number 4 and 5 US mobile telecommunication networks to merge for competitive reasons, they do currently operate two different "flavors" of cell phone service; CDMA for MetroPCS and GSM for T-Mobile. Obviously, this is not an insurmountable problem, and the new company (retaining the T-Mobile name) will press on rolling out the faster LTE coverage for it's users, following on the heels of Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.
