Everything you need to know : T-Mobile/MetroPCS Merger with Sprint: Good & Bad
What does this mean to consumers in general ? will regulators even except the merger
Making 4 top companies AT&T / Verizon / T-Mobile / Sprint in to 3 large US mobile carriers
Is the merger good for competition, speed and prices ? will this effect cable and broadband companies. ?
T-mobile is trying to get in to 5g and will most likely kill broadband with its fast speed so this is very bad news for AT&T Uverse, Google fiber, Comcast xfinity, Verizon and Others. All this means is that Cable will face a big competitor in the market if this deal goes thru.
verizon and AT&T are using a millimeter wave spectrum that reaches only around 2000 ft so they will need more time to get there network 5g up and running.
Also keep in mind the auction for millimeter wave spectrum will start on Nov 24 and the rest shortly after that.
