The chairman of the F.C.C Ajit Pai said that the combined company would advance the leadership of the country to deploy 5G networks.

When two big companies will merge together, people will face issues like higher prices and service. Those who support this merger argue that the wireless service quality will improve, as they will gain access to a broader network.

Also with this merger in place, if you are a Sprint subscriber, you will become a T-Mobile user. The executives leading T-Mobile will lead the merged company.
