As it stands, I’ll all but worn out from the rumors regarding T-Mobile and any number of arranged marriages parent company Deutsche Telekom might be considering. Whether it’s Sprint, MetroPCS or the guy who lives down the block, rumors regarding a merger/buyout have been steady in recent months. According to an article at xchangemang, Deutsche Telekom is set to announce “Strategie 2.0” in early 2010, which will “hightlight further partnerships for its T-Mobile units and more.” Of course, this could mean European units and the US branch or one without the other. The article does mention the rumors regarding T-Mobile and Sprint as evidence that Deutsche Telekom will “marry off its divisions when necessary.”
Speaking to German magazine Der Spiegel, Deutsche Telekom CEO Rene Obermann stated “I still see good growth prospects in the United States, particularly in the area of mobile internet…we want to utilize those.” While what actual utilization he is referring to remains unclear, what is becomingly increasingly clear is that T-Mobile wants to turn around its US branch sooner rather than later.
