无论是公司的T -移动和Metro PCS通信是具有雄厚实力和盈利。然而在最近的过去有在行业发生的重大变化。智能手机是行业中越来越受欢迎，其服务的智能手机并不像其他竞争对手一样好，因此他们一直落后于竞争对手。有些时候他们失去他们的客户的其他竞争对手过去。他们的竞争对手像AT&T，Verizon的前面，他们在技术方面，因此获得客户而这两家公司失去了他们。
Mergers and acquisition have various motivations. Increase in revenue, cost synergies, and acquiring technology have been the motivations for doing a merger. This merger was mainly to share technology, spectrum and achieve cost synergies. All these points have been mentioned below:
Both the firms T- Mobile and Metro PCS Communication were financially strong and were profitable. However in the recent past there were major changes happening in the industry. Smartphones were becoming more popular in the industry and their services for smartphones were not as good as the other competitors and as a result they were continuously falling behind their competitors. For past some time they were losing their customers to other competitors. Also their competitors like AT&T, Verizon were ahead of them in terms of technology and hence were gaining customers whereas these two firms were losing them.
The combined entity is planning to employ a technology together called 4G-LTE. This technology provides better services and will also save around $1.5 billion in cost on an annual basis for the company. This technology will enable them to fight out competitors like AT&T with superior technology at present. Also the merger will scale up the revenues and give them the financial strength to fight out the competitors like AT&T.
