After the news broke regarding AT&T’s purchase of T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion dollars, many T-Mobile customers were concerned regarding T-Mobile’s current pricing and what will happen when and if AT&T does get to go through with this merger. T-Mobile is known for their cheaper plans and great services such as Wi-Fi Hotspot, tethering, and Wi-Fi calling and many of us were concerned if these prices and services would still exist in the future.
Luckily, our friends over at IntoMobile, were able to speak with President and CEO of AT&T Mobility, Ralph de la Vega, at CTIA 2011. Mr. Vega told IntoMobile that T-Mobile will keep its current price structure. What that means exactly is unclear at this moment, but there are some speculations. AT&T could take on T-Mobile’s pricing structure in the future as their own, or AT&T could be keeping T-Mobile as its own entity. Right now though it is unclear on how all of this will work out. However, we will be following the AT&T/T-Mobile news very closely and as soon as we have more information we will share it and keep you updated.
