T-Mobile USA to spend $10.3B on 2G, 3G

T-Mobile USA's CEO Robert Dotson estimated that the carrier will spend about $10.3 billion between 2007 and 2009 for 2G and 3G network deployments. Dotson cautioned that this cost impact will prevent T-Mobile from achieving margins in the mid-30 percent range during the next two years.

'If you look at where our margins are today: low 30, 31, where we've been over the last 12 months, clearly there's a path for us that we feel good about getting to that mid-30s area on margin,' Dotson said.
