The merger between two of the four biggest mobile carriers in the US – T-Mobile and Sprint, will significantly change the landscape of the wireless market. Before that can happen, however, the deal must be approved by a long list of government institutions.
That list got quite a lot shorter, T-Mobile announces, after the merger received the stamp of approval from a number of US authorities. More specifically, the OK’s came from the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, the US Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense. All of them have filed their conclusions on the merger with the FCC, stating that they have no objections to it.
