T-Mobile has been a disrupted in the cellular industry. They have forced “the Big Two” to change what they were charging customers as well as foster competition in general. Sprint will cease being a viable cellular carrier if this merger does not take place and will likely end up in bankruptcy. This would still leave 3 major carriers, but T-Mobile would still be at a serious disadvantage. By allowing the merger to go through, T-Mobile has already announced plans to roll out fast Internet via 5G to homes and businesses as well as being to compete in the cable/streaming video arena. Thus can only be a bonus to consumers.
