Sprint and T-Mobile propose a major merger in order to better compete with AT&T and Verizon. This mega merger is worth $26.5 billion and involves an all-stock deal that exchanges 9.75 Sprint shares for each T-Mobile share. The bipartite company retains the T-Mobile name, keeps its CEO John Legere, and encompasses about 120 million subscribers. This merger carries about $146 billion enterprise valuation with debt in comparison to $313 billion Verizon enterprise value and $334 billion AT&T enterprise valuation. The latter telecom titans invest in substantial fiber-optic, wireless telecom, telephone, can cable television operations.

Joining forces would allow the company to build out a 5G wireless network in direct competition with AT&T and Verizon. This new merger clears the cloudy practices that may harm consumer benefits in the prior M&A attempt back in 2014. T-Mobile and Sprint suggest that times have changed a great deal since 2014 since several companies such as Comcast now enter the mobile business. Moreover, the White House advocates that 5G wireless communication technology is crucial for national economic security reasons. Many stock analysts now consider this mega merger to take place with a 50%+ chance of regulatory approval.
