T-Mobile completes Sprint merger

Is the completed merger good or bad for competition? It’s difficult to say at this stage. It clearly shrinks the number of major US networks from four to three, making it that much harder to find an alternative if you’re dissatisfied with your main choices. This does give Dish the resources it needs to start its own service, but it’s a long way from filling in a Sprint-sized hole. And while T-Mobile has made numerous promises about maintaining prices and jobs, companies in proposed mega-mergers frequently make these commitments even when studies suggest they’ll likely cut jobs and hike prices. – Jon Fingas, Engadget ยป https://ift.tt/348Unq4
