    IF MetroPCS and Leap Wireless Merge, they will be a National carrier and will have 6.2 million Subsribers. This will make them the 6th largest carrier in America with US Cellular moving down to the #7 Position at 5.7 or 5.8 Million Customers. (Website says 6 Million)

    I will post the coverage of each company following this post. I wonder if this new MetroPCS will want to purchase US Cellular to fill in all of it's gaps? There are not too many overlapping areas between all 3 companies and it would put them at an ALLTEL size company for national service (ALLTELL is not national, it is a Super Regional Wirless company like US Cellular).

    Someone had time on their hands.

    Thank you, helps us see how they would complement each other.

    I already know this, but it seems Cricket's coverage area is 10x as big as MetroPCS.
    So Cricket's network is worth more than Metro, Why is it the opposite with the merger?

    I just copied and pasted the information off of their sites.


    I do not know the answer to the coverage question. Maybe Leap has much smaller coverage areas in each of those areas (Knoxville, TN Reception Sucks) while MetroPCS has a much larger more complete coverage area in their areas. (US CELLULAR covers less states than Leap, yet has more than twice as many customers)



    SOOOOOOOOOO Who else could be an aquisition target for these guys? Bluegrass Wireless? Any other smaller CDMA carriers out there that would compliment this new national carrier other than US Cellular?

    They both have a long way to go before they match the coverage of any of the top 5 carriers. Their actual network footprint is small right now. It will take time before they are actually a national carrier. (4-5 years)

    They would also need CLEARTALK though -- so they could obtain the service in Jacksonville, FL and other key markets.

    I guess they'd be a national carrier... they would have coverage in some of the larger metro areas but the number of subscribers would be less than half of Alltel and the size of their network would be smaller than any of the other 5 top carriers. They could be national but they'd need a few years to do it.

    It would be interesting to see whether Metro/Cricket merged with US Cellular would be decent competition for Alltel. Especially since this "fantasy" merger would put the combined company a few million below Alltel.

    Have you seen the TMobile Coverage map? They call themselves national carriers:

    But which map, the t-mo map or the alltel map serves more of the U.S. POPULATION???

    All the maps are flawed because they include roaming coverage. Now find and post NATIVE coverage maps.

    actually the Alltel, & Nextel maps listed above have no roaming included. The Tmobile one is pretty close (includes Suncom).
    Here's just T-mobile coverage:
    [​IMG]

    Alltel is in more places (rural). So Alltel sould be more of a national carrier, because they care more about rural coverage, not just city coverge.
    T-mobile's map looks to me like they only focus on city and interstate coverage. this is no different than Sprint. True national coverage should include the rural coverage. No doubt about it, Alltel should be labeled a national carrier due to it's successful rural and city coverge.

    T-Mobile, as they serve more big cities with more people in them.
    When when it comes to more rural areas in the US, Alltel is king.
    Ranked 2nd in rural coverage would be AT&T. Behind them is Verizon.
    Alltel serves more of the rural population of the US than any carrier.

    It would be interesting to See a coverage map with Leap, MetroPCS, US Cellular and Bluegrass Cellular (Kentucky) all included to see how much they would cover.

    MetroPCS is about to launch their LA network, Should add lots of subscribers as they are a flat rate carrier.

    Sprint actually covers a lot more natively that T-Mobile if that map is correct. Sprint has also expanded into more rural areas since the Nextel merger and affiliate buyouts so you can't just call them a city and interstate carrier anymore.

    Actually, both those maps for AT&T And Verizon include their roaming partners, so this is not their native coverage representation.

    ALLTEL has the largest native network by Square Miles covered.
    Who cares who has the most POPs covered if they don't cover/work where you live.
    On the other hand, who cares who has the largest digital network, blah blah if it doesn't work where you live/work/play? It all boils down to what works where you need it, not in every other part of the country which you may never go to.

    I agree. Att says they have the largest digital network. What they fail to mention is that they are not talking about wireless. They are talking about their wireline (dsl, etc) and their wireless network together. But its not available here, except wireless.

    Are they really including their wireline operations? I thought that when they say they have the "largest digital voice and data network" they go by pops covered with roaming partners. But funny thing is, in my opinion, Sprint has more digital coverage(when roaming partners are included) than AT&T.

    Yeah, they do not include wireless in the statement. If they mean otherwise they are outright lying and not trying to even hide it.....

    Sprint does have the largest with roaming partners. In the US anyway.

    MetroPCS Announces Withdrawal of Proposal to Merge with Leap Wireless
    Thursday November 1, 1:39 pm ET


    DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On September 4, 2007, MetroPCS Communications, Inc. (NYSE: PCS - News) announced a proposal to engage in a stock-for-stock tax-free merger with Leap Wireless International, Inc. (NASDAQ: LEAP - News). While there is widespread investor and analyst enthusiasm for a merger between the two companies, MetroPCS has not been able to engage Leap in meaningful negotiations regarding MetroPCS’ merger proposal. As a result, MetroPCS today announced that it is withdrawing its merger proposal.


    MetroPCS believes strongly in its stand-alone prospects and will continue to focus on realizing its significant growth opportunities. In addition to the recent service launch in Los Angeles, MetroPCS expects additional new market launches by the end of 2008 or early 2009 as well as ongoing increased penetration in existing markets to continue to drive growth and create value for MetroPCS’ shareholders.

    About MetroPCS Communications, Inc.

    Dallas-based MetroPCS Communications, Inc. (NYSE: PCS - News) is a provider of unlimited wireless communications service for a flat rate with no signed contract. MetroPCS owns or has access to licenses covering a population of approximately 140 million people in 14 of the top 25 largest metropolitan areas in the United States, including New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Miami, Orlando, Sarasota, Tampa, Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Sacramento. As of September 30, 2007, MetroPCS had over 3.6 million subscribers and offers service in the Miami, Orlando, Sarasota, Tampa, Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sacramento metropolitan areas.

However, in connection with its proposal to merge with Leap, certain directors and officers of MetroPCS may participate in meetings or discussions with Leap shareholders, some of whom may also be MetroPCS shareholders or other persons who may also be MetroPCS shareholders.
