I thought you had meant network chips.

Verizon > AT&T imo.

I am a bit worried though, I was planning on using T-mobile when I was in Europe.

I found this news article that does explain the terms of the sale just a bit better.

Quote:
AT&T Inc. (T: News ) said it has agreed to acquire T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom AG in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at about $39 billion. The transaction is expected to close in about 12 months, subject to regulatory approvals, a reverse breakup fee in certain circumstances, and other customary regulatory and other closing conditions.

The purchase price will include a cash payment of $25 billion with the balance to be paid using AT&T common stock, subject to adjustment.

AT&T has the right to increase the cash portion of the purchase price by up to $4.2 billion with a corresponding reduction in the stock component, so long as Deutsche Telekom receives at least a 5 percent equity ownership interest in AT&T.

As part of the transaction, Deutsche Telekom will receive an equity stake in AT&T that, based on the terms of the agreement, would give Deutsche Telekom an ownership interest in AT&T of about 8 percent. A Deutsche Telekom representative will join the AT&T board.
source

So in exchange for selling tmobile they get the 39 billion with the possibility of 4.2 billion more and in return Deutsche Telekom gets an 8% ownership stake in At&t and a spot on the board. If At&t sells for 4.2 billion more then the way i read it Deutsche Telekom gets 5% more in At&t

T-Mobile USA, not tmobile in Europe.

Also, it will take a year AT LEAST to get through all the bureaucracy, if it even makes it through. I have a feeling it won't because it will be a GSM monopoly.

pairs nicely with this thread: http://www.overclock.net/technology-...cap-dsl-u.html

1. Cap service
2. Implement over-usage fees
3. Buy out competition
4. Provide worse service
5. ???
6. Profit!
