Mobile hires former FCC commissioner Clyburn to help lobby for Sprint merger

T-Mobile is still trying to complete its acquisition of Sprint and merge the two into the New T-Mobile. The company also thinks that all wireless consumers would be better off after the merger as AT&T and Verizon would most likely reduce prices also to remain competitive.

Now that the government has officially reopened and the review process for T-Mobile's proposed merger with Sprint has presumably picked back up, CEO John Legere made a decision to take this opportunity to reach out to Chairman Ajit Pai and the FCC to plead his case for the merger to go through "expeditiously".

Those are the words from T-Mobile CEO John Legere, who is well known for uttering bold statements. Monroe County has already contacted T-Mobile to offer our unique workforce development programming, like LadderzUp and Recruiting on the Road, to help link our residents to the company's new jobs here. However, critics argue that not only would the proposed merger result in reduced competition and consequently higher prices, it may also lead to unemployment.

Nantes demand Cardiff make full £15m Emiliano Sala payment
According to Sky Sports News , Cardiff have not yet paid any of the £15m fee agreed for the Argentine striker. A source at Cardiff says they will honour the contract, but not until they have clarified " all the facts ".

While prices would effectively stay the same, there could be changes in rates based on taxes, fees, or third-party surcharges which T-Mobile said in a separate letter to the FCC was "not within the control of New T-Mobile". It is undergoing an antitrust review by the Justice Department and the FCC must decide that the transaction is in the public interest. T-Mobile announced plans to acquire Sprint for $26 billion to merge the two telecom companies. "Rather, our merger will ensure that American consumers will pay less and get more". Despite being the fastest-growing carrier in recent years, T-Mobile rounded out 2018 with 80 million subscribers.

T-Mobile says it plans to have "broad and deep nationwide 5G" with initial markets and the first 5G devices launching this year.

That means he's publicly guaranteeing that there will be no price hikes for the next three years.
