Foreign media reported that we have no intention of accepting it, despite rumors this week that WeWork is trying to get current T-Mobile CEO John Legere to be its CEO. It is understood that Legere has no plans to leave T-Mobile as the T-Mobile and Sprint mergers near completion.
While both the Justice Department and the FCC have given the green light to the merger, it still faces one final challenge: Attorneys general in many states are trying to block the deal through litigation.
For now, T-Mobile is already the third-largest u.S. carrier, but it will become even stronger when it brings Sprint’s customers to its ranks.
Earlier this month, T-Mobile said it would launch its first projects, including a free 5G service for first responders and project 1000, if the deal with Sprint is successful. Million — Aims to give 10 million households without internet access to free Internet. Both initiatives appear to be a charitable act, of course, to rally support for the merger.
If Legere joins WeWork, it’s sure to cause some criticism. SoftBank currently controls WeWork, which is also a major shareholder in Sprint — at least until T-Mobile completes its acquisition of the company. Recently, Marcelo Claure was elected Executive Chairman of WeWork.
