Sprint looks to restart merger talks with T

T-Mobile being bought by SoftBank will result in consumers and channel partners having fewer national wireless competitors to choose from, according to one telecom solution provider that requested anonymity.

Stocks for both companies rose in response to the news "as investors bet a deal may finally happen under the Trump administration's looser regulatory climate", reported Bloomberg.

Despite naming T-Mobile as its primary candidate as a potential merger partner, Son said that the company is "basically open to anything" and won't be limiting its options for its USA wireless unit.

A meeting between Son and US president Donald Trump in December raised speculation that the Softbank CEO could bring up again the possible merger of Sprint and T-Mobile US, which he abandoned after opposition from antitrust regulators under the Obama administration.

Now, less than three years later, T-Mobile has become the third-place carrier, pushing Sprint to fourth place. However, it's also up to the other side and whatever conditions they may have.

SoftBank also owns British semiconductor designer ARM Holdings PLC and its stake helped to boost the Tokyo-based company's earnings as well.

"We're basically open to anything".

The plan came after SoftBank in 2014 gave up a bid to buy T-Mobile US and merge it with Sprint in the face of difficulties gaining approval from USA regulators who were concerned about consolidation of mobile carriers. T-Mobile, meanwhile, is now said to be the fastest-growing wireless carrier in the US thanks to a combination of promotions, price cuts and social media marketing campaigns that have seen it steal customers away from both AT&T and Verizon. The Motley Fool recommends T-Mobile US.

NY also claimed lefty Tommy Milone off waivers from Milwaukee - he was 1-0 with one save and a 6.43 earned-run average. He then texted Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen to tell him he wasn't going to make it to the park.

Sprint, which famously has a treasure trove of 2.5 GHz spectrum (more than 160 MHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum in the top 100 USA markets) has called the 2.5 GHz band the low band for 5G and one that gives it an advantage.

On Thursday, Deutsche Telekom AG Chief Executive Tim Hoettges said merger talks will very likely get under way involving its USA subsidiary T-Mobile US.

The Times also said Son remains open to other possible combinations.

"I think the new government had made it very clear that they believe in regulating a lot less, and I think people will be open in terms of potential new transactions", Claure commented.
