T-Mobile, Sprint lobby regulators to win U.S. approval for tie-up

TMUS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senior executives at T-Mobile US Inc and Sprint Corp made the case to U.S. officials in Washington last week that they should approve a planned tie-up between the two wireless companies, arguing a combined firm would have incentives to "aggressively lower prices." T-Mobile US Chief Executive John Legere, Sprint executive chairman Marcelo Claure, T-Mobile US chief operating officer Michael Sievert, and other senior executives met with Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel on Thursday, according to a federal filing on Monday. In a presentation made public on Monday, the firms said they would "focus on taking share from Verizon and AT&T through lower prices." If completed, the $26 billion merger would create a carrier with 127 million customers that would be a formidable competitor to the No.1 and No.2 wireless players, Verizon Communications Inc and AT&T, respectively. Consumer advocates warn the deal will reduce the number of national wireless carriers to three from four. Sources told Reuters last week that the Justice Department had concerns about the merger in its current structure.

U.S. antitrust scrutiny tests T-Mobile's $26 billion bet on Sprint

TMUS

(Reuters) - T-Mobile US Inc's $26 billion (£19.95 billion) deal to buy Sprint Inc banked on changes in wireless technology and media streaming to win U.S. antitrust approval, but the bet now looks precarious. Growing skepticism from the U.S. Department of Justice's antitrust staff over the impact of the merger on competition in the market will test the resolve of the companies to complete the deal that would see the top U.S. wireless carriers shrink to three from four. While the Department of Justice has yet to reach a decision on whether to approve the deal, it is pushing Sprint and T-Mobile for evidence that the merger would be in the interest of U.S. consumers, people familiar with the matter said this week. Sprint and T-Mobile are arguing that the U.S. wireless telecommunications industry has changed substantially since 2014, when they last attempted to merge. Meanwhile, AT&T's Time Warner deal, and Comcast Corp and Charter Communications Inc, which developed wireless offerings to compete with T-Mobile and Sprint, increased some telecommunication companies' ability to bundle wireless plans with other offerings, including streaming video content.

T-Mobile and Comcast FIRST to Give Customers New Anti-Robocalling Feature

TMUS CMCSA

Business WireApril 17, 2019, 1:00 PM GMT. What’s the news: In an industry first, T-Mobile and Comcast today launched cross-network robocalling protection built on STIR/SHAKEN standards, giving consumers confidence that the call they’re getting is from a person, not a robocaller or scammer. The new verification feature is available now for T-Mobile customers and coming later this year for Comcast Xfinity Voice home phone service customers and uses STIR (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) and SHAKEN (Secure Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) standards to identify authentic calls across both company’s networks. That means you’ll have peace of mind that calls from Comcast home phones to T-Mobile phones (and vice versa) are not generated by a scammer spoofing a number. As part of today’s news, T-Mobile also announced that Caller Verified, the Un-carrier’s implementation of STIR/SHAKEN, is now operable across ten smartphones, with more coming soon. Caller Verified is live today for all T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile customers on the LG G8 ThinQ and Samsung Galaxy Note8 and Note9, Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, and coming soon to the new Samsung Fold and Samsung Galaxy A6.

U.S. Justice Department tells T-Mobile, Sprint it has concerns about merger - sources

TMUS

(Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department has told T-Mobile US Inc and Sprint Corp it has concerns about their $26 billion (19.91 billion pounds) merger in its current structure, sources familiar with the matter said on Tuesday, although no final decision has been made. Sprint shares fell about 9 percent after the bell as investors increased bets the deal would not be completed. T-Mobile has defended the proposed merger, saying the combined company would be better and faster at building 5G, the next generation of wireless, to compete with industry leaders AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications Inc. A final decision on the deal is likely near the end of the 180-day Federal Communications Commission review period that expires in June. Legere said on Twitter it was "simply untrue," as had been reported, that Justice Department staff had told the companies the deal was unlikely to be approved in its current form.

Metro by T-Mobile and Giannis Antetokounmpo aren’t Horsing Around—New Competition Offers BIG (Literally) Prize. Why?

So, Metro is going to help another special fan get the chance to connect with Giannis in-person at a Metro TV commercial shoot (NBD!) “I could not be more excited that Metro and Giannis are connecting wireless customers everywhere through the Metro H-O-R-S-E tournament, and I’m looking forward to all the amazing submissions!”. Metro expanded from less than 5,000 retail locations in 2013 when it merged with T-Mobile, to more than 10,000 retail locations today. And since merging with T-Mobile, Metro’s network has expanded from a regional network in 17 states, primarily in the urban core, to covering 99% of Americans today. And now, with the opportunity for T-Mobile to merge with Sprint, Metro customers stand to benefit even more.
