    Long as T-Mobile has merged and it’s done that’s all I care about . The CPUC can shove it. They’re just mad sprint withdrew and made them look like fools . Deployment is underway , I would expect to see our first glimpse of what new T-Mobile can do in the next 2 weeks.

    Well If we were in Philadelphia we could see some fast deployment. I trust what Neville said in your post ( I think) that I copped.

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Where did you see a formal announcement that the Tunney Act review was settled?
    Agree that telephony should be considered Interstate Commerce. Kalifornia has a habit of ignoring Federal jurisdiction, unless they goof up enough and beg for a hand-out.

    I don't think that's what @shortyd999 meant by "coverage".

    I think it was Checker79 that posted this statement.

T-Mobile needs California and the PSC won't suffer one bit if T-Mobile stops doing business there.

    This is largely what I was thinking. The network itself is Federally regulated -- I don't believe California can meaningfully restrict T-Mobile's network in the state. T-Mobile is leasing bandwidth in the state from the Federal Government and California should have no right to restrict T-Mobile's usage of the leased spectrum.

    What California could possibly do is to not allow T-Mobile to have retail stores (basically prevent them from selling service from within the state) but T-Mobile could still do Internet sales to Californians -- as well as maintain their current customer base. They might possibly be able to block T-Mobile from having employees who live in California; which would make maintaining the network harder and more expensive, but not impossible. Last, I think T-Mobile doesn't believe any of this is likely to occur.

    Again, I think T-Mobile thinks that they should have a rather easy win in court. Also, with the current pandemic, any action by California would be blunted by the fact that retail stores are currently closed anyway -- though any court would likely give an injunction that would allow T-Mobile to still operate normally in the state pending a court decision. Anyway, that is why I don't feel T-Mobile has less to lose than California; while California could make it more difficult to operate in the state, they can't really stop T-Mobile from deploying their network and offering service. And, California further runs the risk of losing in court and establishing precedent that would basically render future CPUC rulings on mergers irrelevant -- in fact, I'm thinking some of this might even be the Trump administration, who would love the opportunity to "put California in their place" as they are attempting with fuel efficiency standards.

    I don't think anyone is going to court over this. California just feels disrespected that T-Mobile didn't wait until after the April 16th vote. So CPUC is saying they can't merge operations in CA. I think this is just some saber-rattling and on April 16th, they'll vote to accept the merger.

    Some would say a particular event at the end of 2016 was the first sign...
