    T-Mobile to buy Shentel wireless assets

    T-Mobile revealed in a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing that it will exercise an option to buy the wireless assets of Shenandoah Telecommunications (Shentel), a Sprint affiliate since 1995, including about 1.1 million subscribers.



    However, the purchase price for Shentel’s wireless assets is still the subject of an ongoing dispute and will be determined through an appraisal process. Shentel previously disclosed that T-Mobile could elect to buy the operating assets of its PCS business for 90% of the entire business value.

    Let’s see how this pans out. I’ve been wondering what ended up happening with Shentel. Here’s hoping they can come to an agreement to buy them out at a fair price.

    Apparently, it's going to arbitration. Doesn't surprise me that TMo is buying Shentel out. They don't have a good history with affiliates.

    T-Mobile to buy Shentel wireless assets

    Does Shentel have the best service in rural West Virginia?

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    This should dramatically improve their coverage in West Virginia particularly. That's always been a weak spot for T-Mobile, and now with Sprint/Shentel's towers + T-Mobile's existing towers + US Cellular roaming + AT&T roaming, they'll have basically the whole state covered.
