Yesterday the FCC approved the merger between TMO and Metro PCS. The new $1.5 billion deal will see T-Mobile take over Metro’s 9 million subscribers, which will boost TMO’s subscribers also. TMO tried acquiring Metro back in October but it was’nt made official until yesterday. The merger might have helped TMO acquire the iPhone something they have lacked over the year since all the other major carriers currently have the iPhone in their line up. TMO carried the iPhone in an unofficial capacity, were users would have 2g service. Currently the carrier is also working on switching to LTE which could also help them get more subscribers. After the break check out their press release about the merger.
