Promises Mean Little for Consumers in T-Mobile-Sprint Deal

LAST WEEK T-MOBILE and Sprint, two of the four nationwide mobile
wireless network operators, agreed to merge in a deal valued at $26.5
billion. Not surprisingly, the companies are making a lot of promises
to gain the support of both the Federal Communications Commission and
the Department of Justice, both of which must approve the merger. But
consumers should not be fooled. The proposition here is simple: This
deal will shrink the market for nationwide mobile wireless service
from four players to three, giving consumers fewer choices and
increasing the likelihood that prices will be higher and service
offerings will be less consumer-friendly.
