T-mobile to deploy LTE,refarm HSPA(+) to main PCS band and attacks Verizon

Good news the past couple days for T-mobile. They have filed a complaint with the FCC to block off Verizon's recent purchase of cable company spectrum which could be an anti competitive move. In addition to this they have also announced that they will revamp their company by refarming their existing HSPA(+) network onto the PCS band by disabling EDGE/GPRS this means that T-mobile customers will now be able to buy AT$T or unlocked phones with full capability. Finally they have also announced that they will have LTE deployed and 10 devices released in 2013. Good times to be a Tmo subscriber.

Update: T-Mobile CEO Philip Humm And CTO Neville Ray Outline Company Plans, 10 LTE Devices In 2013

Re: T-mobile to deploy LTE,refarm HSPA(+) to main PCS band and attacks Verizon

is tmobile evil?
did they start the merger with att just to get the 4 billion dollar windfall knowing the merger wasnt going to go through?

are they really trying to block a merger or buy out after they just tried to clomplete a merger with a company equally as large as verizon?

since they are a german conglomerate do they think they need to summon the ghost or spirit of adolph hitler?

ill let you decide...

They aren't trying to block a merger they're trying to block a spectrum purchase.

That's all you asked or didn't ask. VZ and AT$T are trying to gobble up all the spectrum tuo prevent Tmo from expanding and improving and they're fighting to block this.

If you honestly believe this, then I counter that I think tmo is just trying to gobble up all the spectrum to prevent verizon from improving.
Harumph.

VZ already has all the spectrum they need. We'll see what the FCC says.
