    I’m pretty sure they already determined the new name. No reference to Sprint. I think “New Sprint” or similar. LeGere will be the top dog.

    I meant to say “The New T-Mobile”.

    Collecting statistics of opinions based on which provider one is currently using. I am on Sprint post paid and the coverage sucks, so I want them to merge so I voted for the first option.

    No. I have a line on Sprint, but I want Sprint to stay separate and actually fix their network.

    No, I left TMobile for their shenanigans. Focusing on this vs. you know improving their network or expanding it is a clear reason why this was/is stupid.

    I'd rather see Sprint's spectrum be used by T-Mobile than by AT&T, Comcast or Verizon.

    100% no. I just don't like T-Mobile, so if the merger is approved I will cancel my 2 Sprint lines.

    No. I will drop Sprint so fast if the merger is approved. I’ve never liked T-Mobile. Their culture is toxic, and I have no desire to be a part of their company.

    I’ll go with Dish if they get Boost. If not, I’ll plan my next move at that time.

    I say no. I like more competition in the telecommunications industry.

    But I realize that SoftBank is going to do whatever it can to get rid of Sprint. So they will court some other buyer if the T-Mobile thing doesn't work out.

    See if this changes some minds.

    I found it convincing.

    If it is behind a paywall for you, try running this

    and then clicking the first hit as that might work.

    I'm the same way. I'm alright with it as long as they put stipulations attached to the merger to at least try to keep some of the competitive environment in place. Especially with the prepaid side where competition between boost and metro has led to some pretty competitive rates from other carriers who never cared about prepaid before. Selling off boost and virgin should be required, the spectrum sale to set up a 4th carrier, eh, not sure that ever really pans out to an actual 4th carrier. But, selling boost and virgin and I'd like more than a 3 year promise, but I'll take 3 if that's as high as they go. With those things, I can accept the merger, and who knows, maybe TMobile will be the one company to actually hold post merger promises and it turns out better. I'm not sure the alternative is better. So I guess I vote Yes? Lol
