Deutsche Telekom AG is discussing a merger of its T-Mobile USA unit with MetroPCS Communications Inc.

This is an interesting thought.  MetroPCS is a CDMA company while T-Mobile is GSM.  When AT&T was going after T-Mobile is was a very strategic move.  Since the DOJ put a halt to that, why would T-Mobile want MetroPCS?  The answer is very simple, remember back when AT&T was trying to merge it was because T-Mobile had money and no spectrum while AT&T had spectrum and no money.  With this new move T-Mobile who still has no spectrum can use MetroPCS’s huge LTE footprint to boost their size.  The question remains will regulatory restrictions make this fail also?
