MetroPCS, Leap sign roaming deal

September 30, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Leap Wireless International Inc. and MetroPCS Communications Inc., the pay-as-you-go mobile phone companies, settled their lawsuits and signed a roaming deal to help them compete with larger carriers.

The truce ends more than two years of patent conflict, and the roaming agreement lets subscribers use their mobile phones in either company's network. San Diego-based Leap and Richardson, Texas-based MetroPCS have increased customer rolls by more than 20% in the last year.
