Sprint and T-Mobile restart merger talks – April 11, 2018


  1. After being an customer of AT&T Mobility, née AT&T, née Cingular, née SBC Communications, née Southern Bell, née AT&T (to name just a few of the iterations) for more than 25 years, I recently switched to T-Mobile because of their superior coverage in my home location. In addition, my data limits went away and my bill went down by about $40 per month.

    1. So, I am glad to hear that you are enjoying superior coverage in combination with T-Mobile’s lower cost. I have read that T-Mobile is making a strong push to improve its high-speed coverage regions. Perhaps I will be able to praise T-Mobile’s coverage in the coming months? Time will tell…

    1. Using that logic, why not merge all companies into one giant company and maximize the benefit to the public and democratic governance? /s
