Japan's SoftBank Corp (9984.T) will soon downsize its Silicon Valley offices, people with knowledge of the matter said, signaling the company won't revive efforts to buy T-Mobile U.S. Inc (TMUS.N).
Verizon Communications and AT&T Inc expect to be able to transmit wireless voice calls between the two carriers over high-speed data networks by 2015, the companies said on Monday.
America Movil is not talking to anybody at this stage about a possible purchase of T-Mobile US, Chief Executive Daniel Hajj told a conference call on Friday.
T-Mobile US added 2.75 million customers in August, the largest number of monthly subscriber additions in its history, the carrier announced at a company event on Wednesday.
New York, US-based web performance monitoring firm Catchpoint Systems will be foraying into China and Russia, based on the pathway provided by their clients, indicating that Asia Pacific and Russia are the emerging markets in the industry.
BlackBerry Ltd said it would not renew a deal allowing T-Mobile US Inc to sell its products, a gamble by the smartphone maker as it struggles to stabilize its business under an aggressive new chief executive officer.
A report from Chetan Sharma Consulting said the US will exceed the $100 billion mark in mobile data revenue this year to be followed by China and Japan, VentureBeat reported.
Softbank Corp is reportedly in discussions with T-Mobile owner Deutsche Telekom AG to thresh out obstacles for a potential T-Mobile acquisition, according to sources interviewed by Bloomberg.
The low-cost price plans of T-Mobile would most likely block Sprint Corp's takeover attempt of the company as regulators like to have an operator that provide lower rates to customers, Bloomberg reported.
Japan's Softbank Corp is likely to tap the US bond market to fund the $20 billion acquisition of US wireless carrier T-Mobile, according to a report by the Nikkei business daily.
A Sprint and T-Mobile merger will most likely not happen as the former needs to overcome certain hurdles to ensure that a smooth transition could take place, according to a ZDNet article.
A Wall Street Journal report about a possible bid from rival Sprint Corp spurred the rise of T-Mobile shares, the largest increase since October 2012, Bloomberg reported.
Deutsche Telekom's statement revealed that it has a strategic partnership with Twitter Inc to boost the former's opportunities in innovative marketing, advertising and customer service.
The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported on Tuesday including Nokia, IntercontinentalExchange Group, Goldman Sachs and others.
T-Mobile would provide up to 200 megabytes of free data downloads to those who would buy the latest Apple iPad.
