T-Mobile’s UScellular Purchase Expected to Fuel Rural Wireless and Fiber

T-Mobile will acquire the majority of UScellular’s wireless operations. T-Mobile will take over UScellular’s customer base and retail locations, incorporating them as its own network stores and a few of the specified spectrum assets.

However, with this announcement, T-Mobile will be able to expand its services to millions of UScellular customers, providing them access to the 5g network, especially to rural areas.

UScellular customers will also be able to access this network worldwide without any roaming charges. Sooner, they will also be able to switch to T-Mobile’s plans, which tend to offer more benefits, perks, and potential savings.

Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, expressed his thoughts on the deal, “With this deal, T-Mobile can extend the superior Un-carrier value and experiences that we’re famous for to millions of UScellular customers and deliver them lower-priced, value-packed plans and better connectivity on our best-in-class nationwide 5G network.”

He added, “As customers from both companies will get more coverage and more capacity from our combined footprint, our competitors will be forced to keep up – and even more consumers will benefit. The Un-carrier is all about shaking up wireless for the good of consumers, and this deal is another way for us to continue doing even more of that.”

Laurent Therivel, CEO of UScellular, also added that “T-Mobile’s purchase and integration of UScellular’s wireless operations will provide best-in-class connectivity to rural Americans through enhanced nationwide coverage and service offerings at more compelling price points.”

He added, “The transaction provides our customers access to better coverage and speeds, as well as unlimited texting in more than 215 countries, content offers, device upgrades, and other T-Mobile benefits.”

Value-Packed Plans

UScellular customers can keep their current plans or switch to T-Mobile’s unlimited plans at no extra cost.

They’ll also gain access to exclusive plans like T-Mobile’s 5G Unlimited 55+ plans and benefit from T-Mobile’s top-rated customer service and improved retail support.

Transaction Details and Financial Profile

T-Mobile will acquire UScellular’s assets for about $4.4 billion in cash and assumed debt. It has anticipated $1.0 billion in annual cost savings post-integration and $2.2 billion and $2.6 billion with initial integration.

However, UScellular is expected to keep some spectrum and towers, leasing space to T-Mobile.
