Looks like Deutsche Telekom is still looking for an exit strategy with T-Mobile. While Deutsche Telekom and AT&T failed to get governments to agree on a merger that would see the latter buying up the former’s T-Mobile USA, they’re not ready to take offers off the table. DT’s René Obermann says they’re not excluding any options for T-Mobile, including the merger.
Although The deal with AT&T soured because of the scope of the acquisition, giving some of these smaller players a chance to make a move should eventually prove to be fruitful. It really depends on how much risk some of these companies are willing to assume when trying to acquire T-Mobile.
