Two underdogs in the wireless marketplace have announced their intent to marry, and the deal has all the makings of a brand new opera. From regulatory challenges to betting on 5G acceleration, it’s clear the transaction between T-Mobile and Sprint is chock full of opportunities, hurdles and drama. It’s also clear from the announcement that 80% shareholder Softbank has conceded the inevitable need for a transaction to benefit from their position in Sprint. T-Mobile will get a much needed infusion of subscribers, spectrum and infrastructure to accelerate growth and 5G deployment.
