Mobile tops profit estimates amid more Sprint merger scrutiny

T-Mobile Sprint merger

"T-Mobile today is submitting to the commission a commitment that I stand behind - a commitment that new T-Mobile will make available the same or better rate plans for our services as those offered today".

John Legere, T-Mobile US CEO said that, "We love NY!"

The company a year ago said it had also hired a lobbying firm linked to Corey Lewandowski, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager.

Sprint CEO Michel Combes recently said that the 1Million Project has connected 200,000 high school students.

Three of the people arrested will face Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday. Police said the raids stopped more than 17 million potential drug deals.


Executives from the telecom giant T-Mobile - which a year ago asked the Trump administration to approve its megamerger with Sprint - have booked at least 52 nights at President Trump's Washington hotel since then, even more than previously reported, according to newly obtained records from the hotel.

Consumer advocates have said that since Sprint and T-Mobile have a big market share in prepaid plans favored by the poorest wireless customers, they were likely to be disproportionately hurt by the planned deal.

T-Mobile tried to stoke optimism for its proposed merger with Sprint during its earnings call Thursday. My management team and I can make this personal commitment because we believe in delivering on our promises, and we know if we do not, we will lose credibility and the trust of our customers.

Shares of T-Mobile were down 3.69 percent as of 4:04 p.m. ET on Tuesday, while shares of Sprint were down 6.09 percent.

James played along saying, "The tampering rule does not apply on All-Star Weekend". James proposed the move in order to get Westbrook and Embiid on the same side.


The FCC and the Department of Justice, along with some state utility regulators, must approve the deal that would combine the third and fourth largest wireless players. "Rather, our merger will ensure that American consumers will pay less and get more".

The head of T-Mobile sent a letter to the FCC earlier this week, saying they will not raise prices for customers for at least three years if the deal is approved.

But from another perspective, Clyburn's involvement with T-Mobile serves to inoculate the company from critics who argue the deal will be largely bad for consumers because it will mean the elimination of a competitor from the US wireless market.

T-Mobile, as well as the country's other major carriers, are racing to build the next generation wireless network, or 5G, expected to bring faster data speeds. In 2018, T-Mobile brought in a total of $43.25 billion in revenue, also just ahead of analyst expectations and up 7 percent over 2017.
