Proposed T-Mobile-Sprint Merger Gets Closer to Being Approved

tmobile-sprint-merger-gets-approval
The proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint seems to be getting a lot more supporters.

Just recently, T-Mobile unveiled that a number of U.S. authorities have given the proposed merger its much waited stamp of approval.

The approval is said to have come from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security.

These government agencies have agreed to the deal and said they do not see any reason to object the proposed merger.

One way the proposed merger was able to get the approval from these agencies was have promised to reconsider using equipment produced by Chinese supplier, Huawei. Since U.S. lawmakers have branded this manufacturer as a security risk, the decision to reconsider them played a big role in getting its much awaited approval.

All that T-Mobile has to do now is wait for the decision of the FCC and FTC before they can celebrate. T-Mobile expects the final decision could be made in the first half of 2019.

  1. The FCC/FTC has to force T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon to generate 25% of their revenues from wholesale accounts ( independent MVNO's) with large fines for each missed percentage, otherwise, with only 3 national carries, watch out for your wallet, there will be huge price increase in your monthly bill.

    1. They said that the merger will lower prices, so if they dont then hopefully the government can retalliate or consumers can sue.

  2. There will never be lower prices. The whole merger is to stop the price war. If anybody thinks they are getting cheaper prices they will be dreaming. Companies do not merge to service the consumer only. to do that to save their ass and make tons more money. Look at it like this. You look for A roommate not becowue you want an extra person living with you so you do that for Financial reasons so you don’t pay rent by yourself and the cost becowue half on you ans still have close to full privileges. And T Mobile case and Sprint they had to merge so they stop fighting the prices now no more fighting and lowering prices.The customers will pay higher prices. I’m top of that get ready for huge layoffs

    1. ^^Makes no sense.^^ New T-Mobile will spend Billions to build their new, nationwide 5G network that will have massively more capacity than the current one. They won't raise prices because that would be stupid for their business. They will try to steal as many customers as fast as possible from A and V to maximize and accelerate the 5G network ROI, and that means they will charge lower prices, just like they promised Congress and the federal agencies.

  3. Yes. Prices will certainly not be lower. Eliminating Sprint and reducing wireless companies to only "The Big 3" will drive up prices with one less lower-player in Sprint. This is very sad that the US is letting this merger happen. After all the crummy service Sprint has given it's subscribers, it does not deserve approval.

    1. New T-Mo will be a much stronger competitor, so their competition will be much more effective against Verizon and AT&T. Prices will go down because there will be so much more wireless capacity available for sale and New T-Mo+Sprint will save $6 Billion in network ops costs. And cable service prices will drop in every city and town where fixed 5G competes with cable. Don't be "sad." We will see many new service improvements, much faster speeds and lower prices.

    1. New T-Mobile MVNOs will get lower prices so they can help fill up the massive excess capacity on the 5G network, helping to pay for its operation.

    1. Higher prices, more restrictions

  6. My question was actually about the service itself since TMo is GSM amd Sprint is CDMA.

  7. Okay, since there was no response, let me ask it this way. Does anyone know if this new TMobile/Sprint network will use both existing networks or create a new one? Will it be GSM or CDMA? What would be the effect on the existing TMobile or Sprint MVNO's?
