T-MOBILE – HUGE GLOBAL CUSTOMER BASE, POSSIBLY LARGEST IN INDUSTRY — BUT NONE OF THE GLOBAL FIBER-NET! That – AND THAT ALONE _ is the MONOPOLY BASIS for this MEGA MERGER! SEC SHOULD SAY NO, NO, NO, NO, NO TO THIS TAKEOVER OF GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS!
The agency has paused an “informal” 180-day transaction clock “to allow for thorough staff and third-party review” of recently submitted materials.
Sprint and T-Mobile have gone down a rocky road to a merger, calling off and resuming talks. The companies announced that they would merge last April in a bid to cut costs and combine forces to develop a next-generation network called 5G, which would provide faster speeds, more capacity and lower response times.
But the companies could encounter hurdles to gaining regulatory approval for the tie-up. A deal between T-Mobile and Sprint, who are the third largest and fourth largest wireless carriers in the United States by subscribers, previously faced opposition from antitrust regulators under President Barack Obama’s administration.
