T-Mobile and Metro PCS' combined company will have 76 MHz of total spectrum in the top 25 major metro areas, and T-Mobile will also gain some new telecom infrastructure, such as some 6,000 distributed antenna system (DAS) nodes that MetroPCS has deployed. FierceBroadbandWireless Editor Tammy Parker recently spoke with T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray regarding MetroPCS, DAS and spectrum.
