When AT&T acquired Mexican carrier Iusacell last January earlier this year, it promised that it would build the first wireless service network that would service both the United States and Mexico. Now, AT&T continues to make good with that promise by announcing that Cricket Wireless, its prepaid brand, will start making unlimited calls to Mexico available as parts of its standard $50 and $60 plans.
Apparently, buying one Mexican wireless carrier is not enough for AT&T. It seems that the American telecoms company is eyeing to buy another one too. As a matter of fact, AT&T announced just recently that it intends to acquire Nextel Mexico, yet another Mexican carrier and competitor to Iusacell, for a $1.875 billion amount. AT&T is working on finalizing the deal with NII Holdings and laying the groundwork so that Nextel Mexico's operations can be merge with AT&T's expanding pan-American network.
