The FCC should approve the T-Mobile and Sprint merger. The main argument against it is that the US Wireless market would go from 4 to 3 major carriers and that would lessen competition.
I think allowing the merger to go through would actually increase competition because in reality, the US Wireless market currently has 2 major players, Verizon and AT&T.
T-Mobile and Sprint as of today are too small to be on the same playing field as Verizon and AT&T. If the T-Mobile Sprint merger went through, the US Wireless market would go from 2 to 3 major carriers and that would lessen competition. Fewer overall player but an additional player in the top round. Ask most sports fan, the top level of play is the only one that really matters, almost no one cares about the minor leagues. The lower levels don’t move the market.
