I don't think it matters either way. Might as well just merge them considering that Sprint is losing subscribers left and right. They won't be around much longer if they don't merge.

Sprint is a sinking ship. The writing was on the wall. This merger is a good thing because Sprint has hordes of valuable low band-mid band spectrum they can utilize for 5G. Sprint has the largest portfolio of mid band spectrum in the world. That is a fact! Now that T-Mobile is buying them they will have the capital to deploy those assets. Between that and the Nationwide 600 T-Mobile bought T-Mobile's Network in 5 years is going to be interesting. In 5 years T-Mobile will definitely be nipping on AT& t's heels.
