Sprint merger with T-Mobile has 'approved' written all over it

If I were one of the 6,000 Sprint employees at the Sprint World Headquarters in Overland Park, I would run - not walk - to the nearest exit. The proposed merger between Sprint and T-Mobile has "approved" written all over it. And if it does go through, the new headquarters of the merged company will be in Bellevue, Washington.

I went to Sprint about 3 years ago when they were advertising we will slash your bill in half if you are a AT@T or Verizon customer.

My bill is cheap, it will go back up eventually that's how these mergers work the customer gets screwed in the end.

Sure Kansas would be cheaper @ 8:40, but the key words in your statement are "high quality" - far too many KU Grads around for those words to apply to living in this area.

Oh sure 9:25 like MU is such a golden place to have an education from? Get real, many highly educated people graduate every year from KU. To bad you wasn't one of them and then you might not have said such a stupid thing.

5G?

It's a good pitch but needs some analysis beyond the talking point.

Seems like consolidating market shares for increased pricing power in a framework of oligopolistic competition might be the real motivation, imho.

Yeah, the Herfindahl would take a big jump.

Take out two scrappy price competitors and what will happen?

Does anybody know if those unlimited lifetime plans mean it or can they be changed if you tweak your account in some small way?

All thanks to the Ion Project failure that cost sprint billions.
