While we know that Sprint isn’t too fond of AT&T’s plans to acquire T-Mobile, it looks like the carrier doesn’t mind merging with T-Mobile itself. On Wednesday, Sprint’s CEO was reported as making some interesting comments at an investor conference that suggested he had given it some thought. While he made it clear he was being hypothetical when speaking, he noted that antitrust regulators would approve a Sprint-T-Mobile merger, and that the combination of the two carriers would create a true competitor to Verizon and AT&T.
Rumors of Sprint acquiring T-Mobile surfaced in early March, but all was forgotten when AT&T announced its intentions to buy out the carrier a few weeks later. Since then there wasn’t any more talk about the possibility of a Sprint-T-Mobile merger. Well, with so many entities against AT&T, there’s a high chance the deal won’t succeed and if that happens, we wouldn’t be surprised if Sprint announces its plans to pick up where AT&T left off. What are your thoughts on a Sprint-T-Mobile acquisition? Would you prefer it over AT&T-T-Mobile?
