T-Mobile and Sprint to Merge

The AP:

T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere will head the merger and the company, which will be named T-Mobile. In a video announcement posted on Twitter, Legere said the new company will “create robust competition and lower prices across wireless, video and broadband” and lead the way to 5G technology.

Consolidation is usually bad for consumers, but in this case I think it should be good. AT&T and Verizon are two giants, and I think the U.S. is better served with three strong carriers than with two giants and two weaker carriers.
