What a combined T-Mobile and Sprint would look like

After two earlier attempts failed to materialize, T-Mobile and Sprint announced on Sunday that they’ve reached a $26.5 billion merger agreement.

T-Mobile says it has seven major competitors, which is complete nonsense

Comcast’s wireless service is such a good deal it’s losing the company money – BGR

Comcast recently started offering its own wireless service under the brand of Xfinity Mobile. The actual mobile service is provided by Verizon, and the plans are surprisingly cheap and flexible. We’ve said before that Xfinity Wireless is a good deal for Comcast subscribers, and as it turns out, it’s such a good deal that Comcast […]
