The rumors and speculation swirling for years are fomenting into a dust cloud of money. T-Mobile and Sprint, the third and fourth-largest carriers in the U.S., respectively, are poised to form a single entity in a $26.5 billion merger that would put the united company in a close third position behind AT&T with just over 70 million subscribers. The companies announced the deal mid-day Sunday with a slick webpage called All for 5G, highlighting the ways in which the merged corporation will focus on next-generation wireless technologies more effectively against the competition. Should the deal be approved by U.S. regulators — a tall order in an environment that has discouraged M&A between intra-industry entities — the New T-Mobile, as the companies are referring to it — T-Mobile's parent company, Germany's Deutsche Telekom, would own a 42% stake and seat nine board members, while Sprint's parent Softbank would have a 27% stake and four board members.

Of course if it's sponsored data, then the more the merrier. Plenty of bandwidth available for them. What a crock! posted on 09 Dec 2015, 22:50 0 3.

If ATT, Verizon, etc will lose customer because of it, they will do the same. In the meantime they enjoy billions in profits. FYI only in the USA prices are ridiculous, in europe you get 5-8GB data with almost unlimited talk and text, plus international minutes for 6-7 euros, about 8-9 bucks. taxes and fees included.
