In my previous statement i had a mistake i wrote CAN but it had to be CANT Leave no matter what.
But number 4 is definitely cheapest here and then tesco mobile.
3,9 eurocents per minuute or sms is awesome.

If sprint don't merge with Tmobile they will be bankrupt in a year. They haven't turned a profit in years. DOJ only argument is that they would be allowing 3 carriers instead of 4. But in all actuality there will still only be 3 without the merger. They can barely afford to keep the lights on at Sprint

bill jobs, 22 May 20195g is not at all necessary What are you talking about? 5G is necessary in order to push technology forward. Faster networks are necessary in order to implement more complex projects. What if someone said "4G is not necessary at all" 10 years ago? (Which involves not just your cellphone but connectivity of all kinds of networks). Technology has to move forward, it's only a problem is when it does at the expense of the people or the ecosystem

5G just needs to be done prudently, so that customers are not burdened by the migration to it but rather embrace it joyfully

No surprise that the department headed by industry hand-puppet Ajit Pai (I'll let you visualize the logistics of that on your own) rubber stamped this. For US consumers' sake I hope DoJ has the guts to do what's right.

Here in Slovakia we have a phone operator called 4. Or number four.
For just 20 euros monthly and no contract user have unlimited calls worldwide, unlimited SMS, and unlimited DATA.

Here in Slovakia Orange and T-Mobile are most expensive.

"The report also mentions that Sprint customers are guaranteed "equal or better" rate plans on the New T-Mobile"

Sprint already have better rates then T-Mobile. 5 lines of unlimited everything is $100 on Sprint while on T-Mobile, it would be $160 or something

I'm not convinced. Prices going up is exactly why I don't want this merger to happen. I don't care about faster 5G rollout. I just want a good network at an affordable price.

No. Not a good deal.

These sad faces on the Picture.
T-Mobile are thieves.
Asking too much for nothing.
There is a plenty much cheaper network providers with much better quality reliability and stability.

Everyone's prices will go up

Donald Barr Trump Jnr will not let it happen.
