T-Mobile and Sprint announced their merger on Sunday, and on Monday a filing was made with the SEC which details the deal a bit more.

When T-Mobile then revised its offer, Sprint reportedly rejected it due to differences in what both believed the deal was worth, officially stating that neither could come to “mutually agreeable terms,”...

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is intrigued by T-Mobile and Sprint's 5G pitch the companies launched Sunday as part of their merger proposal meant to accelerate the adoption of the fifth generation of mobile networks in the country. “I think the pitch that Sprint and T-Mobile are making is an interesting one, that their merger would propel Verizon and AT&T into more active pursuit of 5G,” the official said in a CNBC interview, adding that the Trump administration is “very much in support” of every American company willing to contribute to the next wireless revolution. “We need it for...
