US: T-Mobile CEO says they are ready to talk merger

T-Mobile US CEO, John Legere, has confirmed plans to engage in merger talks once the US Federal Communication Commission lifts its ban, on April 27. The remarks come on the wireless company posting better than expected quarterly earnings and on experiencing customer growth.

During the earnings call, the CEO reiterated that they are ready to explore all available options as one of the ways of accelerating growth.

“The inorganic and organic possibilities for the company are tremendous. We are interested in looking at some of the possibilities,” said Mr. Legere.

The remarks do not come as a surprise given the way the third largest carrier in the US has been gaining ground as it looks to take on AT&T.
