    If approved, It is going to be called T-mobile. What do you think about this? Is it going to help or hurt competition.

    Competition is a good thing. If they can compete with VZ and AT&T it'll be good for customers of the big two. Now whether or not it's good for Sprint and T-MOBILE customers remains to be seen.

    And the bottom line is (quoted from my news feed):

    This is going to take a long, long time

    Absolutely nothing is going to change in the short term for T-Mobile and Sprint customers. In a best-case scenario, this deal isn’t expected to close until the middle of next year. If it’s approved, the given timeline for T-Mobile and Sprint to fully combine is between three and four years. That clock starts only after the merger is given the thumbs-up, so things will be business as usual into the 2020s...
