John we frequently agree on this forum but in this case, there's no way.

T-Mobile is grabbing customers at a record pace. Most of them are not from Sprint. They are forcing AT&T and Sprint to act and eventually Verizon will as well in order to retain customers.

There is enough spectrum out there to support 4 carriers if allocated properly. Dish is sitting on a ton of it.

If T-Mobile continues to add 1 million per quarter we still have a ways to go before they get to Death Star or Big Red numbers. If those two carriers start losing customers over that time it becomes a real 3 way race.

Unfortunately I don't see Sprint in that scenario above. Allowing Sprint to acquire T-Mobile just for the sake of customers won't fix the culture at Sprint and won't make for a strong number 3. It would be a massive mistake to allow Sprint to buy T-mobile.
