Mobile officially completes merger with Sprint, Legere steps down as CEO

Sprint and T-Mobile

Yesterday was a big deal for T-Mobile and Sprint as they celebrated the completion of their merger two years after it was first announced, but now it looks like T-Mo may have a little more work to do before its merger is officially complete. On the same day, a DC District Court judge cleared the merger under the antitrust-focused Tunney Act. The department had given its approval to the deal in July on condition the combined wireless company sell off assets to Dish Network, making the latter the fourth-largest provider in the United States wireless space.

As for the Sprint brand and Sprint customers, nothing will change immediately. "Between his leadership, his expanded and talented leadership team and the incredible people at T-Mobile, the future is SO bright!" "For now, all customers will stay with the same Sprint and T-Mobile network, stores, and service they've been using", the carrier said in a new website chose to the merger. Many said the merger will not be completed, but it finally is, and we are here for it.

The most bare-bones unlimited talk, text, and data plans offered by Sprint and T-Mobile now start around $65 for one phone. He will remain on the board until June. For example, the company is promising its 5G service will cover 99 percent of the population within six years, resulting in 100Mbps or higher speeds for most subscribers.

T-Mobile says the deal will benefit consumers and had promised regulators not to raise prices for three years. To keep them and add to their ranks, the company plans to quickly develop the fifth-generation wireless technology that will bring broadband-style service through the air and is seen as a critical component of the nation's infrastructure.

Madrid remains the worst-hit region, with 4,175 deaths and more than 32,000 cases, leaving hospitals and mortuaries overwhelmed. The unemployment rate in Spain for March surged 9.3 percent from February - the highest monthly increase ever recorded.

Still, public-interest groups say the consolidated wireless market will cost consumers.

The combination of the country's third and fourth-largest wireless carriers was annnounced in the spring of 2018 and had to overcome a number of regulatory hurdles and legal challenges. It also plans to provide 90 percent of rural Americans with an average 5G speed of 50Mbps.

The new company will be called T-Mobile and have a combined customers base of over 126 million.
