When the smoke clears and the T-Mobile, Sprint merger is complete, we
may be hearing quite a bit more from both John Legere and Charlie
Ergen. The merged company will be run by Legere, current head of
T-Mobile. It also looks like Ergen of Dish Network will be the new
player in wireless. I think these two see themselves re-writing the
entire wireless industry. So, let's take a closer look at what we can
expect as investors, customers, workers and competitors.

First, I think this merger between T-Mobile and Sprint is great for
both of them because it combines the marketing of one company and the
spectrum of the other. Both have strengths and weaknesses. Combining
will help them be a stronger third place competitor.
