According to Bloomsberg report, AT&T’s CEO Randall Stephenson told that the AT&T and T-Mobile deal will improve the network connectivity and various other services for devices such as Apple’s iPhone.
“This transaction is very instrumental” in improving network service, said Stephenson at the event. “Virtually on the day you close the deal, getting a 30 percent lift in capacity in New York City: that’s a significant improvement in call quality and data throughput.”
AT&T made the announcement they would buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom AG on March 20. The deal would bring together the second- and fourth-largest U.S. wireless operators and create the country’s largest. First, the deal must have regulatory approval.
AT&T said that part of the deal involves rolling out more high speed wireless capabilities, which will help the U.S. Federal Communications Commission meet its goal of getting more broadband available to more areas. AT&T will also be able to offer its Long-Term Evolution, or LTE, technology to 46.5 million more users.
