More than half of the $4.5 billion Marriott deal that it struck with T-Mo will go to T-Mob, with the rest going to Bank of America and Ally Financial.
The deal, announced today, is a sign of the strength of TMB’s relationship with Marriott and other US carriers, but also reflects the difficulties of securing a deal with Bank of the West.
TMB has struggled with the acquisition of rival rival US Cellular in the US, and it has struggled to sell its $3.6 billion acquisition of Sprint, which was announced in May.
“We have been a customer of Marriott and T-mob, but as we have grown as a brand, we have recognized that we need to have a different type of relationship with them,” Chief Executive Officer John Mears said in a statement.
“This deal will allow us to grow the customer relationships that are essential to our future success.”
The TMB deal with TMB is the latest in a series of transactions to help T-mobile grow.
T-mo recently signed a deal to buy rival T-Cell, which it said would boost the company’s wireless business.
And earlier this year, it signed a partnership with American Airlines to use the airline’s Wi-Fi network for T-MO customers.
“It’s a good deal for us,” said Joe Belfiore, the CEO of TMO.
T-Mobiles customer base in the United States is now estimated at more than 200 million. “
Our plan is to be the most reliable wireless carrier in the country.”

The agreement with TMO was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, which said TMO expects to be worth $4 billion by the end of 2019.
TMO also said the deal will increase T-mobiles revenue by more than $500 million, or $1.5 per customer, in 2019.
The bank will earn $3 billion in annual fees from the transaction, which will be used to fund its capital investment plan.
The TMO deal with Visa will add another $1 billion to the bank’s cash reserves.
“Visa is a leading global financial services provider with an important role in providing access to global financial markets and expanding the bank network across a range of industries and regions,” the bank said in its statement.
TMobile’s CEO, John Legere, said in the statement that the bank would be using the money from the TMO and Visa deal to invest in the bank and its operations.
“The TMO transaction is an example of how we are taking the risks that are on our balance sheet, and we are looking to take advantage of them by putting them to good use in our financial planning,” Legeres said.
“For the bank, it will provide significant capital to further enhance our ability to invest into our business and strengthen our operations.

Marriott has previously been a T-line customer of TMobile, with Marriott paying TMobile $1 for the first time last month.
But TMobile is not as large a customer as its bigger rivals AT&T and Verizon, and its deal with BofA is much smaller.
In the third quarter, the bank recorded a loss of $3 million on $2.1 billion in revenue.
