T-Mobile makes its move to get Sprint deal done

Tech Industry
A T-Mobile has three new programs. They're launching a $15 a month phone plan free 5G to police firefighters and EMTs for the next decade offering 10 million households with children home broadband access. A mobile hotspot and a tablet for free. All of this sounds great, but T-Mobile says they won't do any of this unless it merges with Sprint. T-Mobile has approval to merge with Sprint by the SEC and the justice department. Attorneys general from 15 states and Washington D.C. are opposing the merger. Anything with all of these like what seems to be excellent ideas that finally gonna get these attorneys general to drop this case and T mobile and Sprint will finally merge. No, I feel like those attorneys general have their own specific concerns and issues relating to this plan and they might even perceive these gimmes as Problematic. It might even blow up in T Mobile and [INAUDIBLE] face and that saying hey these all sound like really positive things. You're gonna help more low income people. You're gonna help emergency responders. Why wouldn't you do that Anyway, why are you trying to force through this deal and you're claiming that this is the only way that you're actually gonna get these done. Now, T-Mobile would argue that we need Sprint's assets to be able to complete these things. But, at the same time, I can kind of see the talking points from the attorney's general to kind of twist this in such a way that it's not going to sound as positive as T Mobile ones. But T Mobile is gonna come back with the idea that T Mobile estimates that this free 5G to police or 4G whatever the coverage areas is gonna save local departments $7.7 billion.>> Yeah So maybe that might be a way to twist their arm but it. You're right this seems like a sleazy move because [CROSSTALK] this is great things but you know what, not until you let us merge with these guys who are obviously floundering. Keeping Sprint around this long seems like it's this, it's like Watching like a suffering animals. Yes. You got to put this thing out of its misery that's too dark. It's actually pretty accurate when it comes to Sprint. Sprint is in a lot of trouble. And they really We need the T-Mobile lifeline at this point so. And it's important to mention that the justice department and the FCC have already given us approval. It's been a year and a half since the merger was announced. So We're really getting to the point where Team Mobile is putting out it's best card at the table and they're saying like can we consummate this deal or not? We really want to get this done, we're trying to do everything we possibly can. So this does kind of like feel Sleazy but you have to remember the context for which, we're really at the end game here. Craft our efforts to a previous story. Yeah, I appreciate. That was a great callback. I was stunned in silence due to the brilliance of that this deal has gone on for so long. The team was actually the largest five network on December 6th. They're not T-Mobile's friends or whatever wherever T-Mobile is going to be. They still are moving forward. So, wow end game, okay, [MUSIC]
