SprinT-Mobile almost a thing now
T-Mobile and Sprint got Committee on Foreign Investments in the US approval for the merger. The US DoJ, DHS, and DoD submitted filings with the FCC that it has no objections to the merger and seeks to not block it.
There’s still some more regulatory approvals to get including passing the antitrust authorities at the FCC’s smell test.
The WSJ is reporting that the deal may hinge on Huawei’s equipment not being used in the US on the combined carriers, although the owners of the combined companies would be free to use it elsewhere.[T-Mobile Newsroom / AndroidPolice]
