(Reuters) - AT&T Inc said it will buy bankrupt NII Holdings Inc's wireless business in Mexico for $1.875 billion, less outstanding net debt.
NII Holdings, the parent of Nextel operators in Latin America, filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States in September after struggling with $5.8 billion in debt and fierce competition in Brazil and Mexico.
AT&T plans to combine Nextel Mexico with Iusacell, which the company acquired in November for $1.7 billion.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's competition regulator on Sunday approved AT&T Inc's $1.7 billion purchase of local cellphone company Iusacell, with unspecified conditions, a statement said.
The Federal Competition Commission said it set conditions on the deal to "avoid risks to the process of competition" in markets where Iusacell would compete with Carlos Slim's America Movil, which previously counted AT&T as a minority investor.
America Movil is Mexico's biggest mobile operator, while Iusacell is a distant third.
