On Tuesday, the telecom giant said that T-Mobile will buy substantially all of regional carrier United States Cellular’s wireless operations in a deal valued at $4.4 billion.

The company said that as part of the deal, T-Mobile will acquire U.S. Cellular’s customers, stores, and some of its spectrum assets.

Previous Talks with Verizon:

Verizon was also in talks to buy parts of the regional carrier, as reported by WSJ earlier this month.

T-Mobile will pay about $4.4 billion for the assets in a combination of cash and up to $2 billion of debt, which it will assume through an exchange offer to be made to some of U.S. Cellular’s debtholders.
