Regulators May Oppose T-Mobile-Sprint Deal Even Under Trump, Analyst Warns

"It's not surprising to see this finally being worked out as Sprint is a very eager seller and T-Mobile - while operating from a position of great strength - needs the added heft that Sprint brings it to prepare for the next wave of competition with AT&T and Verizon", he said.

Klobuchar says that while no deal has been officially announced, T-Mo and Sprint have tried to merge in the past, and reports suggest that they're close to a deal. Sprint is the fourth biggest mobile network operator in the U.S. while T-Mobile is the third biggest wireless carrier in the US. While the GOP presently controls both houses of the Congress and the White House while simultaneously being significantly more open to major consolidations in any industry including the wireless one, the possibility of the Democratic Party winning back many parliamentary seats next year is realistic enough for Mr. Niknam to remain cautious in predicting the chances of the long-rumored tie-up eventually coming through.

Giants' Beckham out for the season: coach
He made a lovely grab of a 12-yard sideline pass, but stepped awkwardly and appeared to roll his ankle as he went out of bounds. The Giants have a lot to be anxious about this season, but their quarterback is quite literally the least of their problems.

The point though is that at the moment neither of the companies have made any official announcement of the merger, but we will soon hear one.

Hot on the heels of a report that claimed that T-Mobile and Sprint are hammering out the final details of a merger, several senators have penned a letter asking for an investigation into the two carriers. Sprint shares jumped from around $6 just before Trump was elected to nearly $10 earlier this year on optimism about a possible deal with T-Mobile tmus . According to the reports, there won't be any sort of breakup fee, if the merger does not happen.

John Barnes says Man U will fall against Liverpool on Saturday
Liverpool will end Manchester United's unbeaten run with a victory at Anfield this weekend, according to John Barnes. The 36-year-old has started just once for United this season, in the 4-1 win over Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup.

The senators, led by Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, the ranking member of the antitrust subcommittee, wrote that a merger between two of the four large USA carriers could lead to an increase in prices just as more and more Americans rely on smartphones as "the primary connection to the internet". Also, the two combined together might just become the leading telecom operator in the USA.

Israeli FA deny reports of pitch invader approaching Isco with a knife
How many Israelis does it take to stop Isco? Israel, which played in its only World Cup in 1970, ended fourth in the group. Spain topped Group G with nine wins out of a possible win and a draw against Italy the only blot on their copybook.
