SoftBank's Masayoshi Son to Meet with FCC
SoftBank CEO and Sprint Chairman Masayoshi Son is meeting with the head of the Federal Communications Commission today in an attempt to convince the regulatory body that combining Sprint and T-Mobile would be good for the wireless industry. Last week, officials at the U.S. Department of Justice indicated to Son and Sprint CEO Dan Hesse that the agency would not look favorably on such a merger and it would face heavy scrutiny. Son is already holding high-level talks with Deutsche Telekom, T-Mobile's parent company. The companies have not publicly announced plans to merge and are still hashing out details, such as a potential break-up fee, which management team would lead moving forward, and which brand would be preserved. Son intends to argue to the FCC that a combined T-Mobile/Sprint would be a stronger competitor to market leaders AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Sprint CEO Dan Hesse will also attend the meeting.

And when it doesn't, T-Mobile will be laughing all the way to the bank again, and gain an even healthier footing than they had the first time they played this little game. T-Mobile is a dark horse. And I like it.
I think the problem is these high-level talks. Is somebody inhailing helium? They should try hexaflouride, then they can have some low-level talks
