Now that the government has officially reopened and the review process for T-Mobile’s proposed merger with Sprint has presumably picked back up, CEO John Legere decided to take this opportunity to reach out to Chairman Ajit Pai and the FCC to plead his case for the merger to go through “expeditiously.”
In a letter to the FCC on Monday, Legere attempted to counter one of the main arguments against the merger — that as soon as T-Mobile absorbs Sprint, competition in the market will decrease and rates will go up. According to Legere, not only is this not the case, but he claims that rates could actually drop post-merger.
