Deutsche Telekom is now said to be in talks with Comcast about a potential sale of T-Mobile US. Recently, the Comcast deal fell through with Time Warner, and it was reported that Dish was interested in T-Mobile as well.

According to Reuters, Comcast is considered to be the "more attractive" buyer for T-Mobile by the parent company. With Comcast's current financial situation, the company would be able to purchase all of the T-Mobile US shares. T-Mobile has been the center of a few acquisitions to date, all of which have fallen through.

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.
  • I have used Comcast in two major US cities (Chicago and San Francisco), Please Comcast do not screw up T-Mobile like your cable TV operations. Say bye bye to the low cost plans.
  • Yup! Say bye bye to low cost plans indeed! These cable companies are all about milking the consumer. We can only 'HOPE' that they'll do the right thing by the consumer but that is highly doubtful. Deutsche Telekom really wants to sell TMO thats for sure!
  • Yes. Comcast-NBC-Universal says, "it's not screwed up for us. We make more money than many countries. We light our cigars with hundred dollar bills. We water our lawns with champagne."
  • Let me say this, I pay Comcast $40 a month for home internet and access to Xfinity Wifi hotspots all over town. I pay Sprint $100 a month for the Family Share 20GB plan. (G2 & Note 4)
    I pay FreedomPop (Sprint MVNO) $20 a month for unlimited everything on my GSIII work phone. Comcast internet makes it possible for all 3 of my phones to have unlimited high-speed Internet all over town. $160 a month. Let's see Verizon or AT&T do that. Buy Tmobile, Comcast. Still using the Sprint GSIII on FreedomPop Unlimited for $19.99
  • There will be no tolerance for happy Comcast customers. Apparently it just does not exist. See comments Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh yea? Well I pay $40 a month to AT&T for 768k.... Oh wait...dammit
  • They must. I don't really understand why, it seems like they've gained a ton of customers in the last year and a half they've got to be making money or are they still losing money? Posted via the Android Central App
  • they are barely posting a profit, but don't really have the money they need for the 600 Mhz auction.
    T-mobile needs a sugar daddy to invest money in spectrum and more infrastructure cause they don't have the free cash flow to do what they need to in the long run to continue their momentum. As much as I agree T-mobile is going great today, they really need a buyer willing to put money into the business in order to continue their success
  • I would prefer the Chinese or Russian government to buy T-Mobile over Comcast... Hell, ISIS can buy T-Mobile and it would still be better than Comcast. /s
  • THIS!!! I can say without a doubt that i would be gone from tmobile before the merger is complete if they are bought by comcast. Verizon will once again get my money.... never thought i would see the day i would choose verizon over ANYTHING. lol
  • Wow, I agree it would be bad, but these forums just seem to be just people trying to out do others in the craziness of their reaction. Leave a cellular company your happy before a merger is even completed, how many t-mobile merger rumors and failed mergers do we have now? With no knowledge of what a post merger t-mobile would be like. I use to be all Verizon, Verizon Wireless, FiOS internet and TV. and they are no better than Comcast.
    Not to mention they couldn't run wireless the way they run cable because they don't have the same monopoly in so many areas. We honestly don't know what they would do, or if it would be approved. Isis? China? Russia? your just crying out for attention aren't you you poor soul. I don't want it to happen either, but I'm not going to be among the people acting like it's the Apocalypse based on a rumor.
  • Its just the "in thing" now for the 20 to 30 age crowd. Bashing corporate America and profits. Never mind corporations employ tens of thousands which contribute to the economy. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Corporations do indeed employee thousands..... at mostly low paying positions and their "big" shareholders (mostly the ultra rich) still benefit at the detriment of millions of other people.... Don't EVEN get me started on the paychecks of the executives of these said corporations...... So yes, we have every right to "bash", as you put it.
  • Couldn't agree more corporate profits at all costs. As they become more international they just build more and more power to extract wealth Posted via the Android Central App

  • As opposed to the original idea that corporations are good because they create jobs? That's not a conservative talking point or anything, laughable. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Our way works, yours does not. Proven time and time again. Let's just say for fun we do limit CEO salaries, how does that change people's lives? Does it just make you feel better? That's what liberalism is all about, feelings, no substance. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Where was it proven that liberalism doesn't work, their are quite a few countries in Europe that would disagree, not saying they are perfect but liberalism can work and has been shown to work in many instances. Posted via the Android Central App
  • What you call working I call mediocrity. I am sick and tired of the left in this country wanting to be like Europe. The United States did not become the richest nation in the shortest amount of time in history by embracing progressive ideas. Could of been another comment about CEO salaries being to high, not yours. I would ask however, how would leveling the playing field be implemented? I'm sure I know the answer, tax the hell out of them. Posted via the Android Central App
  • We have different definitions of success, I'd much rather have a country with better health outcomes, no people going broke due to health costs , or broke due to student loans. A government not controlled by the corporations, but working for the people as intended. I'll take that any day over being to so called richest country , which is reality just means a small amount of people with all the money and one of the worst income inequality in the developed world And yes taxes on the wealthy should be raised , during our countries most prosperous times 40s - early 70s taxes were much higher than they are now and we invested in our country and people. We'll never agree we aren't even speaking the same language, I'm out. Posted via the Android Central App
  • "The United States did not become the richest nation in the shortest amount of time in history by embracing progressive ideas." Actually... that's exactly what they did. Republican democracy and free-market capitalism were considered extremely progressive and radical when the Founding Fathers opted to start a nation based on those ideas. We were having ORDINARY PEOPLE decide who had executive power! Crazy! I mean, a parliament or council of advisers was one thing, but the chief executive as well? Hogwash! Insanity! We've also continued to adopt some other progressive ideas along the way. Not everything, but some. It's an evolutionary process that, so long as it keeps operating (and it's been threatened many times, not just now), continues to keep America great. Trying to claim that we're done now and there's nothing further that needs to be done is disingenuous and goes against the ethos of the founders of our country.

  • Say hello to all inclusive packages. It will be cheaper when bundled. Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • Bullshit
  • Why would they buy it and raise the prices? Their intent is to bundle services. Drop the brand name, re-brand as X1 mobile or something and tie all services together. This is good news people. T-Mobile is on its way out. They need saving. You want cheap service, go to Cricket. Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • If you want crap everything go cricket. Bundling is the worst promotion ever, it hurts every customer involved. If I don't want home phone and cable then I will have to pay extra for 1 service, how is that better? I want quality at a good price, why does it need to be bundled to get a good value. Posted via Android Central App
  • Bundling is not forced on you, it's just an option. It works out in your favor sometimes. Cricket is just fine. Coverage is great and speeds are sufficient for most users. Who doesn't want quality service at a good price? I'm saying T-Mobile's pricing isn't sustainable, they need a company to to fund and expand them. Remember, they lived this long because of the billions they received from the failed AT&T merger. Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • Bundling is not forced on you, but if you don't buy the bundle, you get punished. Getting anything without TV from Comcast comes with a massive premium. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Cricket wouldn't exist or be the price it is if it wasn't for T-mobile, without that competition cricket (AT&T) will raise it's prices too.
    Drop the T-mobile brand? that is so foolish it's not even funny, their brand and momentum is worth almost as much as their network. dropping the brand would kill that momentum. I'm sure they'd offer it as part of a 4 play bundle, but I doubt they'd drop the brand name
  • Worth it to geeks who know better.. The common public still views them as bad as Sprint. And Cricket already existed.. Att bought them and replaced their own Aio brand. MVNO will continue to exist and piggyback. Nobody cares about t-mobile except for 25 geeks in these forums. Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • Wrong, Comcast shill. The other carriers have been copying T-Mobile initiatives like data rollover and the elimination of two year contracts. No T-Mobile means that wouldn't have happened. Comcast will crank up the prices and have awful customer service, because that's what they ALWAYS do. This would be bad for all of us because at&t and Verizon wouldn't have to offer competitive terms anymore either Posted via Android Central App
  • You really believe T-Mobile is changing everything don't you? AT&T isn't watching them.. Verizon isn't watching them.. Nobody cares about them... Sorry bro. I know one person with T-Mobile... Just 1... EVERYONE has Verizon,2nd AT&T. Nobody will leave either carrier even if t-mobile was free. It's a carrier for children.. Are you a child? The byo contract free is from the growth of pre paid mvnos. ALONG with t-mobile, not because of them. Big difference.. I like T-Mobile, but I don't care about them. And roll over is old from the minutes days.. I thank T-Mobile for bring that back to life. But it's not even needed. I have it on my plan, never go over anyway. But the fact of the matter is t-mobile is a zombie. They need life to be pumped into them. Whether it be Comcast or someone else. Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • Luckily for T-mobile and it's many happy customers, the people some guy on the internet personally knows with T-mobile isn't a statistically representative sample of all US customers. Maybe you live in an area that doesn't have the strongest t-mobile coverage, where I live it's very hard to distinguish T-mobile from AT&T coverage and I know many people on T-mobile, quite a few recently from the big two. T-mobile doesn't have the best coverage in every area of the country I'll give you that. But were I live it's actually much better than the big two, much faster, more data and lower prices and the coverage is very good and a lot of people live in areas that T-mobile serves very well. T-mobile has been taking a lot of subscribers from Verizon and AT&T just look at their porting ratios. AT&T has definitely changed and even badly copied T-mobile promotions to compete.
    And really resorting to name calling? "T-mobile is for children are you a child?"
    Your the one that comes off as a child with that statement.
  • I couldn't agree more with this comment Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lol troll harder. Rollover minutes are nothing. Rollover data is a big deal. The fact is, the other carriers are copying T-Mobile, and T-Mobile is gaining a lot of customers. DT just wants to sell, but T-Mobile USA is trying hard, and they're changing things for everyone.
    Anyways a Comcast spokesperson said a few hours ago that they aren't interested in T-Mobile, so this is all moot for now Posted via Android Central App
  • Comcast knows best though. They think they are the best at everything. I absolutely think they would be foolish enough to rebrand.
  • Comcast is the most evil company around. Anything getting acquired by them is bad for those currently with the purchased company.
  • Aside from the most awful customer service (on phone), their services are just fine. No idea what you're talking about. Nexus 5 (AT&T)
  • You didn't read what he said. Try again.
  • In his defense, he did say, "I have no idea what you're talking about".
  • Good for you - my experience is "dishonesty", "lies" and "mis-information" - but they react if you get the FCC to go after them. But then they still lie and pretend that it was all the customers fault. My take is clear: even after 10 happy years with T-Mobile, if Comcast comes in, I will be out!
  • This would b very bad imo Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unlimited talk, text and data for $80/month. One year later..."Oh, that was a promotional rate, it's now $150/month. But because you called, we will give it to you at $80/month again for one year."
  • Lol! So true! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Except that second promotional rate is increasingly hard to get. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nah. I do it just about every year. They always give me something. You just have to push hard while keeping your cool. Posted via the Android Central App
  • nailed it .... every time my promo rate expires I call to cancel and sure enough, I get another year with a promo rate. still, I'm not looking forward to Comcast possibly buying T-Mobile. I'm not as worried about higher prices as I am bloat and carrier branding. the US cell phone market is a disaster compared to the rest of the world. somehow I don't think adding a company like Comcast would make things look any better.

  • tmobile better listen to its users if it wants to remain profitable, considering a buyout by comcast would be enough to lose a bunch of subscribers.
  • Well, so AT&T is the comcast of mobile, Verizon is the devil, Sprint is the moron in the corner eating glue. T-Mobile is not perfect due to their service coverage, but it's the last bastion of the big 4. If Comcast buy's T-mobile... well I guess I could live without a cell phone. Comcast, the only way I could be happy with you is if you where sucked in a black hole.
  • NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Please t-mobile, don't sell out your customers!
    The sad thing is that money comes first over customers for most businesses.
  • What a way to start the day. This makes me sick.
  • Comcast xfinity wifi hotspots everywhere plus t-mobile wifi calling equals better coverage for everyone.... right..... right.... ???? See there I hear the cheering... oh wait those are screams of ...... joy???? right? just to be clear in case you missed it this is a terrible idea.
  • NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Not good at all. Posted via Android Central App on The Nexus 5
  • I love my T-Mobile service...but I will never, EVER be a Comcast customer again. I would grovel back to VZW before giving one penny to Comcast.
  • i hope not, this will put an end to all the good tmobile have done in the mobile industry, i consider Comcast as the worst evil company in all usa, please let this be just a rumor please.
  • Noooooooo T-mobile don't do it we love you the way you are. I'll add a line I'll do what ever it takes don't let Comcast buy you out. Don't be tempted by Coast evil dollars. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Maybe all previous acquisition attempts, have failed because people have taken a look under the hood of T-Mobile and realized there is no money make....under the current model. (Deutschland telecom has stated that in the past, that their model is unsustainable). Looking like a price increase is inevitable. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Right. That's why the AT&T merger fell through. It wasn't the government putting a stop to it. Uh huh.
  • Terrible News. With all the great things that John Legere has done and now those blood thirsty ......... want to sell to Comcast???? This just sucks!!!!!!!!!
  • Wow, T-mobile coverage at Verizon prices. Not a good situation for customers.
  • some how i see t&t and Verizon wishing for this to happen.
  • So much for T-Mobile...

  • Why did it take you so long? FioS is awesome. I dumped Comcast years ago for FioS and never looked back.

  • Suddenly project fi becomes much more interesting to people... If Comcast allows project Fi to function using their network after this...
  • that's a huge if and it'll be very interesting to see how that pans out.

  • Actually, we are just the right amount.
  • This would be awesome!!!!!!!! Why, you might ask?? Because T-Mobile currently sucks, their data network is terrible outside of major cities, and constantly you roam around on edge speed. T-mobile doesn't have the finances to put up as many towers as ATT or verizon, so they just can't compete. Their 3gb plan is only $5 cheaper than what i'm paying with ATT, but i get far better high speed data coverage. Comcast already leases land for it's substations and buildings they have in all different areas. They have a huge data network that spans the suburbs and even the rural areas. They simply have to put up towers on land they probably already own or lease and connect them to their data network. It would be a major data network upgrade for Tmobile customers and make Tmobile competitive with verizon and ATT. More competition means lower prices as they try to win over your business. Right now ATT and Verizon tend to quitely match each others prices, but you throw a third competitor in there, and you're likely to lower or hinder the raising of prices. As for customer service, comcast has always treated me well, at least their employees at the office near where i live. THey gave me 12 months of high speed internet for $20 a month after i went to trade in a defective modem. Can't complain about that.
  • Now you have done it. You will be accused of working for Comcast and supporting evil profits off of the backs of the less fortunate. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't, i'm an engineer, i like to think objectively. I think people just hate comcast because cable companies essentially have a localized regional monopoly. But no one else is offering high speed internet in my area, and i think i'm paying a fair price for my internet compared to other countries and services in other cities. I have satelite tv because it's cheaper and i like the hopper with sling TV. I like choices, i tried tmobile for 10 days and it sucked in the suburbs. Data bandwidth was crap, i had a nearly full signal running a 4G protocol. But the tower itself didn't have enough internet bandwidth running to it to be useful. That's where comcast can really help. I like ATT right now, but if comcast buys tmobile and improves their infrastructure, i'll switch provided the coverage is nearly as good with a good internet backbone and maybe a little cheaper.
  • You are high or just plain stupid. Which is it?
  • Are you closed minded or just retarded???
  • It's not as easy as "putting up" new towers. There are city ordinances and rules and regulations that need to be followed. In Denver there are a lot of holes in coverage in the outlying cities because they won't allow new towers to be built. Posted via Android Central App
  • I agree it's not as bad as people might imagine, but Comcast will definitely add bloat, carrier branding and higher prices. basically we'll have another Verizon and lose a T-Mobile. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Sure, but more choices is a good thing. When you get down to 1 or 2 dominate carriers, you almost have a price fixing or price collusion because they only have to compete with each other.
  • Evidently Comcast is already in bed with Verizon (yet another unholy thought) in hopes of rebranding Vz's wirless services down the road. That should make swallowing T-Mobile a tough sell to even the most soulless of regulators.
  • That article you linked debunks the t-mobile buyout rumor.
  • Yes, I know. That's why I linked to it. A ray of hope shot across the portal to Hell.

  • lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • Maybe Comcast will make T-Mobile better. It can't get any worse.
  • if you're in a city where T-Mobile works, it's great, for everyone else, yeah it sucks Posted via the Android Central App
  • Lmao and that would effectively kill T-Mobile in the US lmao Posted via the Android Central App
  • Fuck off Comcast. Fuck off
  • This would be horrible. At least Dish would bring spectrum to the table that would help improve T-Mobile immediately. Comcast only brings money, which won't help with spectrum until the next auction. Comcast also has horrible customer service, and they would likely get rid of unlimited plans asap. Posted via the Android Central App
  • We need another deal like the failed ATT acquisition. Get it serious enough that there is a payout to T-Mobile if the acquisition fails, then have the gov't regulators axe the deal. TMo gets a windfall of cash and uses it to continue to improve and grow.
  • They havent improved, they used the cash to stay afloat and create this house of cards they have now. The FCC would approve this deal if it happened.
  • I think at this point I may be interested in buying T-Mobile. Why not, everyone else is? Posted via the Android Central App
  • So many suitors, but no takers. T-Mobile books have some stink?
  • It would probably be catastrophic how many people would abandon tmobile if this happened. People thought Verizon or ATT were evil? They're the lesser of evils when it comes to Comcast. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh yah, THIS is a good idea /ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
  • Okay... great. Looks like I will be cheering Sprint from now on, and I hope they manage to do what they've hyped within a year or so. TMO will go to the winner of worst company in the US 2014, and the only options for now are the 100 million dollar fine baby, and Verizon. For the love of god... please don't do this.
  • Nooooooo! Comcast will trash TMobile Posted via the Android Central App
  • Wow I am glad I am not on T mobile. In my opinion Comcast is one of the worst companies when it comes to customer satisfaction and reasonable service at a reasonable price. There is a reason several municipalities rallied together to prevent the recent Comcast merger.
    This is def one company I want nothing to do with, and this is coming from a person who lives in the headquarters city of Comcast- Philadelphia.

  • Well I see my unlimited 4G going by the wayside soon, DAMN IT!!!
  • No, comcast is an internet service provider, if they go mobile, i don't see them limiting people to only a few gigs. They don't do that to your home connection. If they want to steal marketshare, they can leverage their internet infrastructure and offer true unlimited data.
  • Legere will be gone and TMobile will be the next Verizon, cost wise. Party's over. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And how will this benefit TMO customers? Posted via the Android Central App

  • Please, please, please, NO MERGER WITH COMCAST!!!!! I got away from them years ago when they continued to make me mad with their overpriced crap! I do have Dish and I can live with that merger...for now! The only other provider that gives up totally unlimited data is Sprint and I only had a money issue with them when I left for T-Mobile 7 years ago. I guess the only thing to do is to sit back and wait for the fallout before making a move...sigh!
  • I love T-mo, but would move to ATT in about 12 seconds if Comcast swallows them Comcast is downright EVIL.
  • Please don't. I don't have T-Mobile but I'd still hate for Comcast to get any bigger. --- This message brought to you via the sarcasm keyboard available for download at the Google Play Store.

  • Comcast used to be in the cell phone business and then got out. Why do they want back in now? Remember comcast metrophone
  • God, no!
  • I can't imagine a worse thing happening to tmobile.
  • My thoughts exactly, my Comcast bill is actually way more that my gas and electric bill. I don't even have any pay channels and I am told I'm on their best promotion. Comcast sucks! Posted via the Android Central App
