Let’s hope the T-Mobile Sprint merger keeps being delayed forever

Sprint T-Mobile merger

Much like flying cars, a T-Mobile/Sprint merger always seems to be on the horizon. Rumors first emerged in 2014 about a deal, only for everything to be called off, with regulators to blame. The grapevine sprouted new stories shortly after the corporate-friendly Trump administration took office, and reached fever pitch just a few weeks ago.

We were meant to expect a formal announcement of a deal in late October, but mercifully, it seems that there's been a last-minute reprieve. Bloomberg is reporting that "Sprint, T-Mobile Deal Announcement Is Likely to Be Delayed," with an announcement not expected until November. Let's just keep bumping that date down the road.

What a combined T-Mobile-Sprint network would actually look like

T-Mobile, Sprint merger basically official

Reports are swirling that T-Mobile and Sprint have agreed a deal to merge in principle, with an announcement set to come in October. A merged company (T-Sprint? S-Mobile? Oath?) would be a formidable player in terms of subscribers, with about as many customers as Verizon or AT&T. But there's a much bigger question for existing customers: What would the network look like?

Both Sprint and T-Mobile have a similar network presence: good in cities and urban areas, not as good as Verizon or AT&T in rural areas. Combining Sprint and T-Mobile's networks wouldn't instantly bring the network up to par with Verizon or AT&T, but it would create a brand-new and very dangerous player.

The nightmare T-Mobile Sprint merger is close to happening

Sprint T-Mobile merger

You probably shouldn’t take Sprint’s iPhone 8 deal

iPhone 8 Sprint pre-order, release date

iPhone 8 pre-orders open on Friday, which means that all four carriers are currently jockeying for position to have the best launch-day deal in place. AT&T put its cards down earlier with a killer buy-one-get-one-free deal, albeit with an entire spool of strings attached.

Sprint's counter-offer is here, but unfortunately it's a tepid trade-in offer that barely even qualifies as an offer at all.

It looks like Sprint and Charter could merge very soon

Sprint Charter merger in 2017

You can tell the end times are approaching, because all the nation's biggest telecoms companies are trying to become even bigger. Just days after we heard about a very serious proposal for Comcast to buy Verizon, new reports are emerging that Sprint, Charter, and T-Mobile could soon become one giant ball of suckiness.

Sources told Reuters that SoftBank, the Japanese telco that owns Sprint, is working on financing to buy out Charter. The deal would likely be worth more than $100 billion, and turn Charter-Sprint into a formidable telecoms behemoth that could offer home internet, cable TV, and wireless services.

Sprint is just straight-up trolling Verizon now

Sprint vs Verizon unlimited plans:

In absence of actually having a good network, Sprint is relying on some top-notch PR to bother Verizon. Sprint already stole away Verizon's signature spokesperson -- Mr "Can You Hear Me Now?" -- and it's now hitting on Verizon's pricing with a savage stunt.

For one day only, Sprint has opened up a "Twice the Price" shop next to a Verizon store in Queens, NY. The concept is a store filled with regular things that are twice the price, just like Verizon's plans are twice the price of Sprint.

Sprint is giving away an entire year of unlimited data for free

Sprint unlimited vs T-Mobile

Most cellphone plan deals normally come with all kinds of strings attached. Get a free iPhone! -- provided you buy two other iPhones, port three lines from another carrier, add insurance, and accept payment in the form of a Diners Club International gift card.

So when Sprint quietly announced that it'll give you a year of free unlimited service, I assumed that it would only apply to people who buy a new Essential phone, or perhaps require a pledge of personal fealty to Marcelo Claure. But actually, it's a lot simpler than that.

The insanely-hyped Essential Phone is a Sprint exclusive, sort of

essential phone

After months of (unwarranted) teasing, the high-end Android flagship from Andy Rubin's Essential Products startup — called simply Essential Phone — finally made its long-awaited debut not too long ago. We still don't know a concrete release date for the device, but today we found out where you'll actually have to go to buy one, and it's a bit of a surprise: Sprint.

Sprint finally beat T-Mobile for something

T-Mobile vs Sprint

Network speed comparisons often aren't kind to Sprint. Among the big four carriers, Sprint has a nasty habit of coming in stone dead last on average speed and coverage, while longtime rival T-Mobile has been competing with Verizon for the top spot.

So you'd think that Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure would be glad to be ranked above T-Mobile's bombastic John Legere for a change. But when the competition is to be the third-most-hated CEO in America, I'm not sure Sprint or Claure will be glad to have won.

Sprint’s LG G6 deal is good, but Best Buy’s is even better

LG G6 Deal: Sprint vs Verizon

Poor Sprint. It probably thought it would have a killer deal if it cut the price of the LG G6 in half forv Memorial Day, since not many people can turn down a $300 flagship phone. But unfortunately, the one thing better than a 50% off deal is the 65% off that Best Buy is offering on the Verizon version of the G6.
