Sprint reportedly unsure about a T-Mobile buyout after FCC meeting

It seems Sprint and T-Mobile’s proposed merger might be on hold, if not dead in the water.

The proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint has one underlying theme: the FCC. The FCC, and by virtue of them the Department of Justice, have not been fond of anything less than four major carriers in the past.
