T-Mobile US names Sunit Patel new EVP, Merger and Integration Lead: The Un-carrier taps telecommunications veteran for new role leading New T-Mobile transition efforts

T-Mobile US, September 24, 2018

T-Mobile US has announced that Sunit Patel has joined the company as its new Executive Vice President, Merger and Integration Lead, effective October 1, 2018. In his new role at T-Mobile, Patel will lead T-Mobile’s strategic planning efforts to integrate its business with Sprint as the two companies work through the necessary regulatory reviews and other closing conditions to combine and become the New T-Mobile. On April 29, 2018, T-Mobile and Sprint announced they had entered into a definitive agreement to merge in an all-stock transaction. The parties expect the transaction to close in the first half of 2019. Patel will report to T-Mobile President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Sievert and will be a member of the company’s senior leadership team.

Patel joins the Un-carrier from CenturyLink where he served as the company’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. He previously held the same role at Level 3 Communications for more than 14 years before the two companies merged in 2017. Over that time, Patel played a key role in numerous successful large-scale strategic transactions, including Level 3’s purchases of network operator Global Crossing and business internet provider tw telecom. T-Mobile is confident that Patel’s experience and demonstrated skills will substantially increase the likelihood of a successful outcome for the New T-Mobile transaction, which will in turn bring significant benefits to consumers, employees and shareholders.

“I’ve known Sunit for many years and he’s going to be a fantastic addition to this talented management team,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere. “He is smart, savvy, full of big ideas and ready to hit the ground running. I am confident he’ll fit right in here at the Un-carrier. I look forward to seeing you in magenta, Sunit!”

“We are increasingly optimistic about the path we’re on to create the New T-Mobile and are now looking forward to bringing someone with Sunit’s experience to our team to lead us through the strategic planning for integration of our businesses — one of the most exciting and integral aspects of this merger,” said T-Mobile President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Sievert. “Sunit has the depth of knowledge needed to create and drive forward a highly complex, strategic initiative of this magnitude. He will have a tremendous impact on shaping the New T-Mobile, and will add even more value to the company for many years to come.”

Prior to his time at CenturyLink and Level 3, Patel served as CFO and co-founder of Looking Glass Networks, a facilities-based provider of metropolitan telecommunication transport services. He was also previously Treasurer of MCI WorldCom, and Treasurer of MFS Communications, a competitive local exchange carrier acquired by WorldCom. He was formerly responsible for Corporate Development and Strategic Planning for BJ Services Company, now a part of Baker Hughes, and has worked in investment banking. Patel holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering and Economics from Rice University and is also a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).

T-Mobile’s experience with MetroPCS promising for Sprint deal, says ex-Metro executive

By Monica Alleven, Fierce Wireless, September 17, 2018

The former head of network operations at MetroPCS, the prepaid company that was acquired by T-Mobile in 2013, says he has all the confidence in the world that the combination of Sprint and T-Mobile will be successful based on his experience with the MetroPCS deal.

Ed Chao was senior vice president of Technology, Strategy and Development at T-Mobile for a year before moving on to other endeavors. Before that, he was senior vice president of Corporate Engineering & Network Operations at MetroPCS. Prior to that gig, he was in the vendor space at Lucent Technologies Bell Labs and Nortel Networks.

Chao, who spoke with FierceWirelessTech on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 (MWCA18), is now the CEO of PoLTE, a startup that is pitching its Cloud Location over Cellular (C-LoC) technology as the most accurate cellular-based location technology available today.

Chao addressed at a high level his experience with the T-Mobile team, which is today largely the same as it was five years ago. “It was an amazing experience for us,” Chao said. “Strategically, we were a great fit.”

T-Mobile CEO John Legere created a culture that was “very aligned with where we were heading in the future,” and he sees similarities with how T-Mobile plans to disrupt the TV space with its acquisition of Layer3. Legere has said T-Mobile acquired Layer3 to build TV for the mobile age (PDF) and the 5G era, and to take the fight to Big Cable and Satellite TV on behalf of customers everywhere.

Chao said when the MetroPCS deal was in play, Legere went out and talked to people in the sales channel, which is key when you’re conducting a transaction of this nature. People are worried about their jobs—and the whole transaction was a chance to take Metro and T-Mobile to a whole new level.

“I think he’s got the capability to do it again. It’s just what he does and it’s now baked into the DNA of the company,” he said. The idea is to out-hustle the competition, which Legere calls “Dumb and Dumber” when referring to Verizon and AT&T. As a no-contract operator, MetroPCS was nimble and able to pivot and change rapidly because it didn’t have to worry about two-year contracts.

“Just from my own personal experience, they’ve got a track record that is definitely a positive.”

Chao’s comments are timely given that not all mergers result in a successful combination of cultures—Sprint’s acquisition of Nextel Communications is one example—and T-Mobile executives have said (PDF) the same process used in the MetroPCS acquisition would be used here.

The National Wireless Independent Dealer Association (NWIDA) told FierceWirelessTech that it is not opposed to the proposed merger, but it wants to hear from whomever ends up with the prepaid brands that they are going to maintain the independent dealer channel. The fear is that the combined entity will look to reduce costs and slash dealers because a Boost store happens to be located across the street from a MetroPCS store.

“We want a solid commitment that no matter what happens with the merger, the owners of the Boost Mobile and MetroPCS brands will keep and continue to utilize the indirect dealer channel, to at least the level they have been to date,” said NWIDA President Adam Wolf in a statement.

According to NWIDA, there are roughly 8,000 independently owned Boost Mobile retail stores (Boost is a prepaid brand of Sprint) and 11,000 MetroPCS stores.

According to T-Mobile, the Sprint transition will involve more markets, but the MetroPCS transaction involved some markets that were more challenging than those involved in the Sprint deal due to the large concentration of customers in certain MetroPCS markets (higher than Sprint’s) and larger number of handsets that needed to be replaced.

T-Mobile executives have stressed with FCC officials that prepaid and postpaid customers alike will benefit from the combined entity’s price strategy as well as from an improved New T-Mobile network. The T-Mobile executives also promised that the New T-Mobile will retain T-Mobile’s and Sprint’s current prepaid brands.

Now at PoLTE, Chao is busy navigating a complex ecosystem involving chipset suppliers and systems integrators. PoLTE, which uses signals from existing LTE networks and supports all the cellular variants—including LTE Cat-1, LTE-M and NB-IoT—is leveraging the cloud to allow for a larger platform and better visibility to provide the best accuracy possible.

PoLTE is now integrated with Sequans and Riot Micro, and it’s in conversations with every major chipset company, although Chao declined to name names due to confidentiality requirements. The hope is to get its first revenue by the end of this year or early next year, he said.
