    Report: US Department of Justice likely to stop Sprint merger with T-Mobile
    A new report out of Washington from Reuters claims that when Sprint and T-Mobile present the expected merger plans to the U.S. Dept. of Justice, the staff responsible for deciding if a merger will hurt customers are likely to recommend that the merger not happen. This is according to three people who told Reuters that are familiar with the staff's thinking.

    If they dont they wont be able to compete with Verizon or AT&T. If the goverment wants to help or act like they care about us make Verizon and AT&T at minum split in half for more compitition.

    There's no reason for either carrier to merge or acquire Sprint for anything but its spectrum holdings. That's the only thing of quantifiable value that the company has. Anything else salable, is coincidental.

    This happens every time these merger talks are announced. Sprint and tmobile should just give up.

    I hope this merger gets killed. Unfortunately, I don't think Justice Department will reject it. Not with Masayoshi Son getting chummy with Trump.

    Yeah, I'm getting a weird feeling about the deal this time.
