    Deutsche Telekom to leave UK Market

    The Register, reports that T-mobile will be leaving the UK market to focus more on their US market. It may be hard for t-mobile to sell, although, cell phone operator 3, might be interested if they have the money.

    source: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/05...oning_blighty/

    What will this mean for us customers in the United States?

    the problem is US operation is not better either
    they simply don't know what they're doing, and the situation is like Sprint in early 2007

    T-Mobile USA needs to step up. They want everyone to know how good they are, but they don't advertise it well enough. Plus they are very good at pissin' customers off by leaving the US bunch hanging while they announce updates in Europe like crazy. e.g. Cupcake for G1 and the G2 release date.

    You know, for the first time in a long time, I'm actually feeling bullish on T-Mobile USA. They just peeled off the Customer Care push, which is a huge expense. There's still plenty of time. Don't give up on them just yet.

    I just hope 3G rollout and new phones will be released faster. T-Mobile is still the best out of all the U.S. Carriers just bad at promoting themselves...

    Well the reason they are pulling out of the UK is to focus more on the US market. Deutsche Telekom will most likey buy out Sprint and merge the two. The only way Tmo can grow in the US would be to merge.

    Merging CDMA and GSM...not easy

    Which is why they will probably run it parallel, while slowly switching the Sprint side to GSM.

    I don't know. It's confusing. I'm pretty sure DT has it all planned out if they do a merger with Sprint.

    They won't have Sprint GSM version, it will most likely gradually just become T-Mobile when they are done getting people to switch over.
