    T-Mobile joins AT&T in fiber fever

    T-Mobile is reportedly working with Citigroup to find partners to invest up to $4 billion to build a fiber network in unspecified parts of the US. T-Mobile is the nation's second biggest wireless network operator, in terms of subscribers, but it is the only big mobile provider that doesn't own a wired network.

    The news – from Bloomberg, citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter – dovetails with a recent report, also from Bloomberg, that AT&T is talking to infrastructure investors about expanding its massive fiber network buildout even further. According to that report, AT&T has hired Morgan Stanley to help drive interest among investors for a fiber joint venture worth up to $15 billion.
    “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

    I suspect that "in the long term", some areas will be more cost effective to own your own fiber than to lease. Place like Manhattan have the density, but also competitors. and NYC regulations.
