T and t wireless
Economists call it "perfect competition" and it's basically the opposite of a monopoly. It's when a market has a sufficient number of players to ensure the highest level of efficiency for both buyers and sellers.It's a principle that's once again being put to the test as T-Mobile and Sprint seek a merger that would reduce the number of major wireless carriers in the United States from four to three.The two companies make an interesting case.

Sprint and T-Mobile are officially seeking to merge. If the deal is approved, the resulting company would be the nation’s second-biggest wireless carrier after Verizon, controlling roughly 100 million customers. What could the merger mean for competition — and your pocketbook? Here’s what to expect.Why is the deal happening?The argument from T-Mobile and Sprint largely boils down to scale. By combining, they say, they’ll be in a better position to take on AT&T and Verizon. The deal could eliminate duplicate spending and allow the new company, which would be called T-Mobile, to collect revenue from one, massive customer base.This expanded scale could have important consumer implications. Right now, the whole wireless industry is racing to deploy a next-generation data technology called 5G. Expect to hear a lot about 5G in the coming weeks as this deal moves forward.How could the deal affect consumer prices?It's too soon to tell.
