T-Mobile is well into its five-year, $60 billion effort to merge with
Sprint and build a massive, nationwide 5G network. But a new lawsuit
filed in Washington takes aim at one of T-Mobile's first steps along
that path: Shuttering Sprint's legacy 5G network.
As reported by FierceWireless, just weeks after T-Mobile closed its
acquisition of Sprint in 2020, it began deactivating the Sprint 5G
network that covered parts of 13 US cities. Sprint had begun building
that network in 2019, after T-Mobile announced its plans to purchase
the company but before that transaction officially closed.
