Wellllll… to quote Monty Python I’m not dead yet Apparently DT (parent of T-Mobile) has been pushing to change the terms the merger with Sprint. It seems DT isn’t pleased with Sprint’s poor performance over the last two years, according to the Financial Times. Two sources told the newspaper DT pressed Softbank (parent of Sprint) to reduce Read more…

As we said when the deal was first announced, our concern and concentration has been and continues to be the over 40,000 independently owned wireless dealers and repair shops. We call on Dish to work with us, as well as the Boost dealers and Masters, to ensure these thousands of small-medium sized businesses and the tens of Read more…

As we posted yesterday, the Sprint merger lawsuit has been decided. Judge Marrero ruled the transaction “is not reasonably likely to substantially lessen competition”. The group of Attorneys General promised to continue exploring options to prevent a merger of T-Mobile with Sprint, after the carriers won the legal challenge to the proposed $26 billion deal. The judge stated Read more…

According to an article on the Wall St. Journal (link below) Judge Marrero is expected to approve the T-Mobile’s merger with Sprint, according to people familiar with the matter. The decision, which these people said is expected to be made public Tuesday, would hand the carriers a victory over a group of state attorneys general who argued Read more…

Apparently, a Boost Master dealer in NY has slashed it’s staff. Peter Adderton tweeted earlier today that Hyperlink, based in NY, has cut it’s sales staff by letting go between 7-10 employees, and NWIDA has confirmed this.

There’s a really good article on Fierce Wireless (link below), which we will summarize here. It focus’ on the Sprint and T-Mobile MVNOs. Combined, those two control the “network of choice” of the vast majority of US MVNOs. Of course, there are the carrier owned MVNOs (Virgin – which is migrating to Boost – Boost and Metro), Read more…

What? Yep – well, maybe. While (we know) the FCC and DoJ have approved the merger, there are still a bunch of states suing to stop it. And, while the trial ended last month, will the losing side appeal? Could be – and that would add more “time to the clock.” But, even outside of that, if Read more…

Last year, Ting made the news a few times. First it was reported they were dropping Sprint. Then it was reported they were dropping T-Mobile. Now, they’re announcing they are not dropping any of their current networks. And they’re doing it in a video, which is embedded below. When it made the announcement last year, Ting was Read more…

Yesterday, we reported that Sprint had announced they’ve killed off the Virgin Mobile brand, and will be moving all those customers to Boost. Today we learned that the Virgin Group will be taking the Virgin Mobile brand back. Virgin is still deciding whether they will relaunch the brand in the US under a new identity. A representative Read more…

According to a text message (see below) Virgin Mobile, currently owned by Sprint in the US market, is shutting down and all customers will be automatically transferred to Boost.
