Everybody has one. Well, almost everybody.

The Pew Research Center reported last year that 96 percent of Americans had a cellphone or smartphone. Which means the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint — a deal that moved significantly closer to completion on Tuesday — will have a ripple effect across the country.

A United States District Court judge batted away the last significant challenge to the planned merger when he ruled against a lawsuit filed by state attorneys general who argued that the deal would hurt consumers. Now the millions of people who receive bills from Sprint or T-Mobile are wondering what happens next.

What will happen to customers of T-Mobile and Sprint?


 “While not all mergers are good for the consumer, this one qualifies as a “good merger” as it will help in the overall development of 5G, and that’s a huge plus for the consumer. 

“The resulting company will have greater economies of scale and the ability to provide consumers with much lower prices and better quality.”
