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.

Sprint announces vague plans for 5G in 2019, assuming it lasts that long

Sprint 5G plans

Sprint is struggling to find its place in the US wireless industry right now. Its network has been hit by years of under-investment to be worse than competitors, and its Japanese owner is openly inviting (begging) any other company to acquire or merge with the struggling carrier.

But somewhere inside Sprint HQ, optimism lives on. A press release today gave a vague promise that by 2019, Sprint will have some kind of 5G network up and running.

Verizon is stealing Sprint’s customers with its new unlimited data plan

Verizon vs Sprint

Verizon began 2017 by blindsiding everyone with a new unlimited data plan. I say "blindside," because a year ago yesterday, Verizon's CFO told us all that "the unlimited model does not work."

If unlimited data doesn't work, someone's going to have to explain to me how Verizon is stealing all of Sprint's customers all of a sudden.

Sprint improves its unlimited data plan to play with the big boys

Sprint unlimited data vs T-Mobile

Earlier this week, Verizon announced an all-new unlimited data plan that included HD video streaming and mobile tethering. Not to be outdone, T-Mobile followed suite and added those features to its flagship unlimited plan. Today, Sprint announced that it's adding HD video streaming and mobile hotspot to its unlimited data plan, which I am sure is a total coincidence and in no way an attempt to keep up with the competition.

Not even T-Mobile can touch the new deal Sprint just announced

Sprint vs T-Mobile

A report this week put Sprint's network firmly in last place among national carriers. Coverage and speed -- the only two things that really matter for a network's performance -- are awful compared to T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T.

So to make up for the lack of network performance, Sprint is taking a page out of T-Mobile's old playbook, and slashing prices with a ridiculously good deal.
