T-Mobile and Sprint delay deadline to complete $26 billion merger deal
Reuters reports T-Mobile confirmed the information in a filing to the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Recently, Makan Delrahim, head of the US Justice Department's Antitrust Division told CNBC that he hasn't made up his mind, which is why the carriers have filed for an extension.
Of course, there's no guarantee that T-Mobile and Sprint will be able to win all the approvals they need by July 29, in which case additional delays may be announced. The good news for the carriers is the merger is still on the table, at least until US Justice Department says otherwise.
