Its been in the news a few times the last couple years, Sprint and Tmobile might actually get along and decide on a merger. It still most likely would have to be approved by the higher government powers that be…and most likely blocked, in my opinion.
But just say for the sake of discussion, that a merger does happen. What does this mean? Will things all stay the same as they are, separate companies names and plans/services. Or, will one brand get dissolved, and now, say a consolidated Tmobile, would then now be a dual band carrier, as in their devices/SIM’s would (eventually) be able to hop between both of their GSM and CDMA networks as needed (kinda like Fi can do). I, for one, really like this idea.
How would such a merger affect MVNO’s?
EDIT 4-29-18: Its official now
