NEW YORK — AT&T (T) stunned the telecom world on Sunday by announcing that it has agreed to pay $39 billion in cash and stock for T-Mobile USA — potentially making AT&T the No. 1 wireless provider with 39% of the market.

AT&T plans to buy T-Mobile in a deal that would create an industry giant by combining the top wireless carriers.
