A year after being successfully blocked by the FCC, T-Mobile will be merging with MetroPCS. Combined the two mobile carriers now have a user base of 42.5 million making them the USA’s 4th largest mobile carrier.

T-Mobile and MetroPCS make a particularly good match because they use the same mobile radio technologies in their infrastructure making both companies’ customers’ devices compatible with the new consolidated network.
