Softbank still wants Sprint and T-Mobile to merge

According to a Reuters report on Friday, Sprint parent company SoftBank is prepared to cede control of Sprint to T-Mobile's parent company, Deutsche Telekom, as part of a proposed merger of the two USA carriers. SoftBank hasn't broached the subject with Deutsche Telekom executives, reportedly because strict U.S. Federal Communications Commission rules prohibit rival carriers from colluding during ongoing airwave auctions.

Officially, talks between the two companies can not begin until April. Sprint is now up $0.31 (3.39%) to $9.31, after trading down all day, and T-Mobile jumped up $3.01 (4.97%) to $63.62.

I am personally monitoring this situation and remain in close contact with both the Department of Defense and the U.S. Trump's top aides - even as the White House comes under fire for working too closely with Vladimir Putin's Kremlin.

In 2014 roles were reversed for the 3rd and 4th most popular USA wireless carriers, as Sprint pursued a merger that would have given them controlling stake of T-Mobile. "Maybe a simple merger, we may be dealing with T-Mobile, we may be dealing with totally different people, different company", Son said.

Sprint has found itself stagnating in the US market, and has watched as T-Mobile leapfrogged it to take over the third-place position. However, T-Mobile is now in a much better position than they were almost three years ago. He did not specify what deregulation would benefit his business.The Trump team has yet to make antitrust appointments at the U.S. Department of Justice that could be used to gauge how deals will be viewed. Lead by colorful and irreverent CEO John Legere, T-Mobile has carved out a niche as a carrier that is willing to take on Verizon and AT&T with attractive pricing, fun promotions, and innovative plans (which are often later copied by the competition). Carriers will need to spend billions of dollars to upgrade to 5G networks that promise to be 10 times to 100 times faster than current speeds.

"We may buy, we may sell", Son told analysts on the company's latest quarterly earnings call earlier this month.
