T-mobile USA has launched T-Mobile brand and service in the former SunCom markets throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The acquisition, for an aggregate of approximately $2.4 billion in cash and assumed debt, was announced in September 2007 and completed in February 2008.
With the changeover, all preceding SunCom retail locations have been re-launched as T-Mobile stores. And former SunCom customers will receive detailed information on their transition to T-Mobile later this month.
Since the acquisition, T-Mobile says that it has invested more than $100 million in strengthening the network in the Carolinas and Puerto Rico to give customers a stronger signal in a wider area, as one example of the enhanced regional coverage. The transition also increases T-Mobile’s national network coverage so that the company now serves 99 of the top 100 markets nationally. More information on the transition is available at T-Mobile’s VeryGoodDay.info website.
