The DoJ had asked the FCC to hold off on making a decision, so the deal could be investigated, but everything is looking good. So, that means the only thing left is for the FCC to approve the merger. Of course, the competing bid from Dish could still cause problems with the deal.
This deal can benefit sprint greatly.

I still dont see why another company can buy another without the gov getting involved.

If sprint was smart they would take softbanks offer. It may be a little less money but it is more overall and especially with them helping sprint pay off some debt. Not to mention they understand how to take a struggling network and get it competing with the big carriers.

As I have stated before...... The best thing for Sprint would be to take the Softbank deal and forget about Dish. While Dish is offering more to buy the whole company (25 billion for 100% of Sprint), the Softbank deal is superior in the fact that they are offering to buy 70% of Sprint (20 billion for 70%) plus they are also going to infuse sprint with another 8 billion to pay down their debt (that they have had since their purchase of Nextel) and sure up their network infrastructure. So the numbers are: The Dish offer is 25 billion for 100% of Sprint or 28 billion for 70% of Sprint. Which would you choose...... If Dish wants to be a carrier so bad then they should go after T-Mo and leave Sprint/Softbank alone.
