Sprint & T-Mobile USA Announce Merger Agreement

The big news coming out of the US telco space over the weekend is a merger agreement between US telcos Sprint and T-Mobile. The new combined company will be named T-Mobile and current T-Mobile CEO John Legere will serve as the Chief Executive Officer. The new company promises that it will be “force for positive change” . What sort of change? Here’s the video:

Along with the faster rollout of 5G technology, Sprint and T-Mobile say the merger will lead to job creation, lower prices for consumers, improved coverage, and “unprecedented network capacity.” We’ll see if all that comes true. Assuming that this deal gets approved of course. That’s a bit of an open question seeing as there’s currently a battle in the courts with the AT&T / Time Warner merger. So we’ll have to wait and see on that front.

Hopefully, this new company decides to come to Canada as we could use some of that “force for positive change” around here.
