Sprint and T-Mobile will have to wait longer to merge

"Beyond frequent time is valuable to enable for thorough group and zero.33-social gathering assessment of newly submitted and anticipated modeling relied on by the Candidates", acknowledged the letter, signed by David B. Lawrence, head of the T-Mobile/Lunge Transaction Project Force, and Donald Stockdale Chief of the FCC's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau.

The FCC said it was pausing the informal 180-day review clock, now at day 55, because of two new and complicated submissions from the companies and a third submission that the FCC has not yet received. "The additional review time is common to FCC merger reviews and we recently supplied a large amount of data to the FCC that they want sufficient time to assess".

T-Mobile, the fastest-growing of the four major US wireless companies thanks to low prices and features such as free video, needs approval from the FCC and Justice Department for the Sprint deal. The companies announced the proposed deal in April, capping four years of on-and-off talks between the third- and fourth-largest USA wireless carriers.


The FCC said the model is "significantly larger and more complex than the engineering submissions already in the record".

A business model detailing how the combined firm would provide "financial basis for the projected new network buildup" wasn't submitted until September 5. "This new economic modeling will also require additional time for review". Although the Applicants had previously provided a network engineering model as backup for certain network claims, you explained that since that time "the model has been extended", and that the newly-provided model "completes" the prior work. T-Mobile also provided extra economic modeling that responded in part to petitions to deny the deal. "We are confident that this transaction is pro-competitive, good for the country and good for American consumers", it said. The FCC received both on September 5.
