T-Mobile, MetroPCS merger officially approved [updated]

America’s fourth-largest wireless carrier is about to get a little larger. Unnamed sources have told the Wall Street Journal that the boards for both T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom and MetroPCS (PCS) have approved a merger between the two American wireless carriers, thus giving T-Mobile another added boost as it prepares to launch its own LTE network next year. One source told the Journal that the newly-merged company “will be called T-Mobile and run by T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere.”
