So What Will A T-Mobile / AT&T Network Look Like?

Let’s put aside rumors of AT&T having to divest parts of the T-Mobile network in order to receive FCC and DOJ approval as we look at what the two conjoined networks could look like. Fierce Mobile acquired some images courtesy of American Roamer, an “independent source of wireless carrier network coverage and spectrum information” has gone and done just that. In this block of pretty pictures of the US wireless market, you’ll see both the current coverage and spectrum holdings of both companies as well as what the company could look like when a deal is signed, sealed and delivered.

While most journalists, analysts and tech pundits agree along with the CEO of AT&T Randall Stephenson that they may be forced to divest some assets in order to get the deal to go through, this is just a look at what a potential deal could yield. Of course AT&T has said in no uncertain terms they will refarm T-Mobile’s existing AWS network in order to further buildout the AT&T LTE network and do away with overlapping towers. Sad.

    I see that fcc commisioners are not liking the merger right now so there is still hope don’t give up. And if they do the merger then they say the network will be better. Maybe at&t’s network won’t be so crappy.
    Also, there’ll be more coverage in more places and more spectrum so less dropped calls for AT&T users and less no bars or gprs for t-mobile.
    I don’t think that paying a little more for that will be that… well a lot more for that will be that bad.
    Lastly, I believe I read somewhere that if you have an hspa+ device that you’ll get a free lte device. Have y’all seen the thunderbolt speeds?

    Damn! It doesn’t look like the extent of coverage extra will amount to anything. At the very best, I’m hoping it’ll at least take the strain off the AT&T towers. I suspect it’s this strain, that’s put the breaks on tracfone’s smart phone circulation – which has come to a stop. I hope this merger goes through, TMO aren’t managing to it’s full potential, and maybe I’d be able to also $g it on the network with a straight talk phone.
