Executives from Sprint Corp testified on Monday that the U.S. wireless carrier has struggled to improve its network, hindering its growth and underscoring the need to merge with larger rival T-Mobile US Inc . The states seek to prove in Manhattan federal court that the deal between the No. 3 and No. 4 wireless carriers would raise prices, particularly for users on prepaid plans. The state attorneys general, all Democrats, asked Judge Victor Marrero to order the companies to abandon the deal.
showed evidence on Monday that a senior Sprint executive predicted price increases for all major wireless operators if the deal is consummated. The evidence came as a landmark case to block the merger kicked off in New York with testimony from Roger Solé, Sprint’s chief marketing officer, the first witness to take the stand. Lawyers for the states showed an email from Mr Solé to Marcelo Claure, the chairman and then acting chief executive of SoftBank-owned Sprint, where he presented his own ideas about more customer-friendly options.
T-Mobile and Sprint headed to court on Monday to defend a merger some consider too big. The telecom companies will try to convince a judge that the state attorneys general suing to stop T-Mobile from buying Sprint - are wrong. Attorneys for 13 states and the District of Columbia will argue in Manhattan federal court that combining the number 3 and 4 wireless carriers would drive up phone bills, especially for those with pre-paid plans. While the companies argue that a bigger T-Mobile - which would result from a $26 billion deal - would be better suited to innovate and compete to push down prices. The battle to merge started in 2014 during the Obama administration but officials at the Justice Department and Federal Communications Commission urged the companies to drop the idea, which they did. Fast forward to 2019 - the Trump administration signed off on the planned merger after the companies agreed to sell Boost Mobile - owned by Sprint - to Dish. If the deal is approved, the merger would leave just three nationwide wireless carriers: Verizon, AT&T and the new T-Mobile.
