Those carriers with the biggest batches of high-quality spectrum have more bandwidth to satisfy customers' growing demands for mobile phone calls, texts and Internet usage. Connecting decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas, Bloomberg quickly and accurately delivers business and financial information, news and insight around the world. Orange SA and Deutsche Telekom AG, the French and German owners of the four-year-old venture, will receive as much as 6.2 billion pounds in cash and the remainder in new BT shares, Chief Financial Officer Tony Chanmugam said Thursday during a conference call.
Deutsche Telekom will receive a 12 percent stake in the enlarged carrier and one board seat. EE, with more than 24 million branded customers, edged out Telefonica SA’s O2, the second-largest U.K. Weeks later, Madrid-based Telefonica began negotiations to sell O2 to Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing’s Hutchison Whampoa Ltd. The purchase price values EE at 7.9 times the target’s 2014 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excluding synergies.
Market indices are shown in real time, except for the DJIA, which is delayed by two minutes. The move has fueled talks among rivals, including Sky Plc and Vodafone Group Plc, as they look for ways to bulk up or add services to create their own bundles.
The deal will add to BT’s free cash flow in the first full year after completion and to its adjusted earnings per share one year later, BT said. The deal, which requires antitrust approval, is projected to be completed by March 2016, BT said.

The Germans can’t sell the shares for 18 months while the French have agreed to a 12-month restriction.
The data overload crippled the network, leading to spotty reception and slow speeds in some regions. Deutsche Telekom is open to buying Orange’s BT holding in the future, people familiar with the matter said in December.

The regulators' main concern was that the deal would take the ranks of national carriers down from four to three. That's why experts now expect the big players to focus instead on acquiring smaller, low-cost carriers like MetroPCS (PCS) and Leap Wireless (LEAP). Their spectrum could relieve capacity issues in large metro areas, which are the places most crippled by the crunch.Industry analysts also think that Sprint and T-Mobile could gain approval to merge, though that's a bit like two drowning victims clinging together. Sprint is losing piles of money every quarter, while T-Mobile is hemorrhaging customers with contracts. Another possibility is that several carriers could partner in a spectrum-sharing joint venture.But the most likely scenario is that the carriers continue fighting each other to snap up the last remaining large swaths of high-quality spectrum. Last year, AT&T bought a sizable chunk from Qualcomm (QCOM, Fortune 500), which the chip company had used for its failed Flo TV venture.
LightSquared, a venture-backed company that wants to build its own nationwide wireless network, has vast ambitions and an equally gigantic problem.

Its spectrum is only licensed for satellite services, not the terrestrial transmissions needed to carry wireless phone signals. LightSquared is currently caught in -- and losing -- a high-stakes regulatory fight over the issue. The company has considered building its own wireless network, perhaps by snapping up Sprint or Clearwire, but the costs of doing that are scary.
Some analysts think Dish will take the plunge, while others predict that it will go the safe route and sell off its holdings.Either way, it's got vultures circling. Probably AT&T (T, Fortune 500), which has excellent spectrum but is quickly running out of it in many markets.
It has no path to deploying a 4G LTE network, and its parent company is eager to sell it off.Sprint (S, Fortune 500) has by far the most available spectrum through its partnership with Clearwire (CLWR). Clearwire's is in such a high frequency band that signals travel very short distances and have terrible building penetration. That means Sprint has to build many more cell towers than it otherwise would.Experts agree that Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500) is in by far the best position, with ample capacity for the immediate future -- particularly if its spectrum deal with the cable companies gains regulatory approval.
