DOj doesn’t deal with concession it’s the FCC.. there is even a huge penalty to pay of some sort if the new tmo doesn’t apply by the terms reached.. If the reports are true and not put out by career people that are salty.. than the DOJ really just can’t accept the us going from 4 to 3 carries .. is that a strong enough case to hold up in court? Maybe not, but it will sure make sprint/tmo think about if they wanna spend more time on this in court or do they back out

 

Penalties for broken promises

So what happens if the New T-Mobile fails to deliver on any of the obligations outlined here? In their letter to the FCC, T-Mobile and Sprint say they'll agree to an "unprecedented" amount of verification and enforcement. "Failure to meet New T-Mobile obligations will trigger severe, increasing, and continuing voluntary contributions that will make failure prohibitively expensive and incentivize New T-Mobile to meet its commitments," the companies said

Trump is not the typical administration, so past decorum may not apply.

T-Mobile, just like Coal companies and some other firms, may just view penalties as the cost of doing business, especially if they start losing customers and become less profitable or even unprofitable.

Two thoughts:

If the Merger fails, I think he will sell them off to some cable or Dish. However they are still confident it will pass.

Ya, this is unprecedented and the doj will struggle to win in court, but the time this will take

Perhaps he’s looking at the calendar as the Merger deadline for Sprint/T-Mobile is July 29, 2019: https://www.engadget.com/2019/04/29/t-mobile-sprint-merger-deadline-delay/

Would they keep pushing this back?

They did do that however they have said both parties will likely approve or disapprove still the first week of June

Based on reports stocks are taking a hit. The pressure is now on Delrahim to announce how he feels ( thanks to the internet lol). He can overrule the staff, but if he agrees to sue.. the spotlight will be on t-mobile and sprint to see if they allow a definite delay until this matter can be resolved in court.

Allowing, Verizon and att to continue with their plans!! As everything comes to a halt with t-mobile and sprint other than their regular network plans

 

Att/Verizon stock have also taken a hit on this news today

If the merger isn’t consummated by the 7/29/2019 deadline, would T-Mobile be on the hook for the $600 Million Breakup Fee?: https://www.axios.com/t-mobile-could-owe-sprint-600-million-if-it-walks-away-647826e9-afc9-41e4-86bb-7d8dd8fafb5f.html

So what’s the point of a “merger deadline”? Does it actually mean anything?

Only the fcc has a shot clock deadline which they will meet .. the doj can take as long as they want they have no shot clock or deadline. This thing could do on for years if they sue

Really hope this doesn't get shot down, because that means I have to jump ship to Verizon.

Why VZW? Tmobile is doing good on LTE coverage and Sprint will likely end up with a cable company.

I haven't found T-Mobile's coverage to be great, especially out in the suburbs Sprint definitely has superior coverage overall imo. And why Verizon? because screw AT&T I've had them before but never again.

I'm all for not using att. The more people that leave the 5GE carrier the better. Was just asking why not TMO or Sprint?

They don't owe the fee if Sprints credit rating is downgraded.

And I think that would happen if T-mobile backs out of the deal. I’m very positive that T-mobile has no intentions of doing so

I agree. Sprint would need to be perfectly run and likely growing customers, which is not happening. It is possible that all conditions are not publicly listed or very obtuse.  Not certain that T-Mobile would volutarily give the money even if the conditions are met. Plenty of gray area.

DOJ  Staff recommended blocking of the merger BEFORE concessions were announced Monday per Washington Post.

This is why I can't wait for this to be over.   So much hair-trigger rumors of doom and failure or success.

 

Rumor of DOJ suing to block T Mobile Sprint merger was premature, done before concessions were given to FCC earlier this week.

Something I'm really curious about. If Sprint gets the $600,000,000 breakup fee from T-Mobile, what are the odds that they use some of that to buy some of Dish's lowband?

    • Im skeptical of TMo News because they list cities constantly.  ATL is like on half the update pages.  It's like a few sites get upgraded (we don't know extent of upgrade) so gets listed. Not like back when spectrum refarm, mimo or qam was changed in mass.  With how far it is into it, I think the merger will happen.  Im split on it however.  I do like that we will get movement from Dish.  Whether they sell out in the future or not, it will be exciting to see Dish actually move forward with something.  I like Sprint's regional roaming agreements and the fact that I use them and support local business if you will.  I'm sure these will go away and will be missed.  I've never liked TMobile's 'no service' status on my phones when they could easily at least roam on a regional carrier. Whether prices go up or down, they won't be where we need them.  They won't go down to what we we think if fair.  If the merger happens, once my phones get updated for TMobile VoLTE I think we'll switch to MintSim.  I pay $90/mo + tax for two lines and use ~12GB total.  It's way too much for essentially internet access, and most places we are on WiFi anyways.  I feel like all the carriers keep adding more and more features or limits to these plans that very few actually use to keep prices inflated.  Make you feel like you get a lot so are ok with it, even though you actually use a little.  
    • What I don't get about the states suing is that they don't seem to understand that no matter what, at some point Sprint is going away. IMHO...if the Sprint/T-Mobile Merger does not go through, then eventually Sprint will be broken up into pieces and auctioned off to Verizon and AT&T and T-Mobile and now possibly Dish. In my mind, no matter what, Sprint will be going away at some point. So essentially Sprint is going way one way or another. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • All of the above. I think there are maybe 12 towers with band 41. Terrible. 
    • I agree.   Not sure how diligent they will be in providing a good 600MHz path and depth.   I do read on TMO News, that they are progressing with 700 deployment as well, but the main focus has been 600.      Do you think this merger will ultimately be completed?
