At recent hearings before the House Judiciary and Energy and Commerce committees, Republicans asked pointed questions about how the proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint would impact Rural America.
T-Mobile CEO John Legere and Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure tried to pull magenta-colored wool over the Republicans’ eyes by making vague promises riddled with loopholes. These Republicans from Virginia, Oregon, Indiana, North Dakota, and so many other states are right to ask questions. All of rural America should reject the hype that the T-Mobile/Sprint merger somehow will solve the rural wireless access problem. It won’t.
