MetroPCS (PCS -1.1%) shareholders approve the company's merger with T-Mobile USA (DTEGY.PK). The approval was widely expected after the most high-profile opponents of Deutsche Telekom's initial offer terms - major shareholders Paulson & Co. and Schoenfeld Asset Management, and advisory firm ISS - all gave a thumbs-up to Deutsche's revised offer. Now comes the hard part: getting two low-end carriers who have been steadily losing share to Verizon/AT&T to reverse their fortunes as a joint entity. Quite a lot hinges on how T-Mobile's new subsidy-free plans are received.

    depends on what concept t-mobile will apply and how they respond to the quick changes in the market.


    MetroPCS success came from quicjk response to the market, working closely with dealers,understanding the market demands,finding the niches in the market and responding according to that.
