Virgin, T-Mobile Broken Up… But Still Together

It’s like those bad relationships you just can’t get out of. While they’ve been arguing for quite some time, even taking each other to court, the deal is now done to split apart Virgin Mobile (UK) from T-Mobile – but the two sides are still working together. Virgin Mobile gets back the 50% of the company that T-Mobile owned – but T-Mobile doesn’t get much money for it. Instead, they just get to continue to provide the infrastructure for Virgin – at higher fees than before.
