The Federal Communications Commission has voted this week on a party-line vote to classify text messages in a specific way that will give wireless carriers even more power.
As wireless networks in the United States transitioned back to unlimited data usage, a lot of restrictions were put in place to help temper usage.
After a lot of stop-and-go, it is starting to sound like T-Mobile is preparing for a successful merger with Sprint.
The Federal Communications Commission has informed T-Mobile and Sprint that it needs more time to review their proposed merger before granting them the final approval. So, it has stopped the 180-day transaction clock for this particular case as it needs to do a thorough staff and third-party review of all the documents submitted.
The wireless carriers in the United States have decided that bundling services is one way to sweeten the (usually expensive) monthly subscription offerings, other than just providing access to a stable, fast network.
Unlimited plans are back in full force with the wireless carriers in the United States, which means they keep getting shuffled, tweaked, and otherwise messed with as carriers try to eke out the most money from their subscribers.
Some rumors, if you say them enough, might eventually come true. And that is indeed the case today, as T-Mobile and Sprint have made a groundbreaking announcement on Sunday afternoon.
Take a quick trip back to November of last year, when we heard that T-Mobile and Sprint had officially called off their talks surrounding a potential merger between the two carriers.
Since the year 2014, there have been consistent rumors and reports that T-Mobile and Sprint will merge, but the two companies have yet to actually go through with it.
