A lot of the pain in your wireless bill is being diminished these days, no matter what carrier you use. Perhaps in response to the threat of cheap, internet-based messaging services like WhatsApp, and definitely in competition with each other, AT&T and T-Mobile have just sweetened their deals.
Sprint's support for acquiring fellow wireless service provider T-Mobile may be dwindling faster than it had hoped. Arguments that the two carriers can better compete with juggernauts Verizon and AT&T may lose steam as Deutsche Telekom AG, the owner of T-Mobile, is confident that T-Mobile can stand on its own.
Despite intense opposition from the U.S. government, Sprint will be taking its case for a merger with T-Mobile directly to the Chamber of Commerce March 11, according to a new Wall Street Journal report Tuesday.
Sprint is facing some stiff opposition to a proposed takeover of fellow wireless carrier T-Mobile, but Masayoshi Son, the president of Japan-based SoftBank Corp. reiterated the company's desire to follow through with the deal during a quarterly earnings report Tuesday.
Sprint, the third-largest wireless carrier in the United States, announced its fourth quarter results Tuesday, revealing that while it is experiencing customer growth, the company is still losing money.
In what could be another blow for a proposed Sprint takeover of T-Mobile, Sprint executives are reportedly reassessing their game plan in light of opposition from both the U.S. Justice Department and Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
T-Mobile and CEO John Legere have launched an all-out assault on the mobile wireless industry in the past year, with its industry-shaking "Uncarrier" initiatives and competitive pricing, but for Legere, AT&T has always been a special target. So Legere is probably pleased that T-Mobile has won a court decision prohibiting an AT&T subsidiary from using its color scheme.
Despite mounting pressure against a merger with T-Mobile, Softbank-owned wireless carrier Sprint is reportedly close to obtaining $45 billion in debt financing for the deal from major banks, a DealReporter report revealed Wednesday.
The proposed Sprint and T-Mobile merger seems to have hit another roadblock in the government as Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler has apparently expressed concern about any further consolidation in the U.S. wireless industry.
AT&T has been under pressure from upstart wireless company T-Mobile for the past year and has had to respond on several occasions - not always in the most graceful way. Now AT&T is showing it can not only respond to T-Mobile, but put pressure on the industry with its newly announced Mobile Share restructuring.
