T-Mobile-Sprint Merger Gets Approved by FCC

After months of debate, it looks like the proposed T-Mobile-Sprint merger may finally be coming to a close.

Yesterday, it was reported that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved the proposed merger. The report was shared by an unnamed "FCC official".

Of course, this report comes as no surprise since the FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, has previously revealed his stand for the $26 billion deal. Pai expressed his support for the merger back in May. According to the report yesterday, Pai's position was supported by Republican Commissioners Brendan Carr and Michael O'Rielly. Meanwhile, both Jessica Rosenworcel and Geoffrey Starks (both Democrats) opposed the merger, along with presidential candidates and other influential leaders.

While this may seem like a win for the two carriers already, they still have one hurdle to win over. After gaining the approval of the US Justice Department, a number of state attorneys general filed a suit against the merger.

T-Mobile and Sprint still have to win this lawsuit before they can finally celebrate and put up the "New T-Mobile."

  1. Well, coverage gaps will be filled but in no way means that the new platform will be any better. Time will tell.
