One of the more consistent rumors in the wireless industry is a potential merger between T-Mobile and Sprint, cropping up every once in a while to stir the pot.
Back in September, a report outlined T-Mobile and Sprint may have finally jumped a few final hurdles to get closer to an actual merger.
While there have been on and off rumors of T-Mobile and Sprint merging in the US, a new Reuters report today claims that both parties are “close to agreeing” to the final terms of the deal. Sprint’s parent company, SoftBank, would own 40 to 50 percent of the merged company, with T-Mobile’s parent company — Deutsche Telecom — retaining the majority stake.

Carriers are no strangers to offering sweet deals to try and convince people to switch to their network, and Sprint is at it again.
With 4G LTE the standard that most wireless subscribers in the United States expect, carriers are already looking forward to what’s next.
