Altice, a cable TV provider, has asked the FCC to intervene in T-Mobile's $26 billion bid for Sprint. Altice plans to resell Sprint service beginning next year and fears the combined entity won't provide it with favorable terms. Moreover, Altice is "concerned about T-Mobile's willingness to support Altice's further expansion in the wireless market." Altice opposes the deal and has requested that the FCC not allow the merger to proceed. When asked for comment, Sprint and T-Mobile called Altice's actions "part of the normal FCC open comment process." Sprint and T-Mobile will have to file official responses to public comments on the merger by September 17.
