Sprint Corporation Key Developments

Sprint Corporation Introduces Mobility-as-a-Service

Sprint Corporation has introduced Mobility-as-a-Service, or MaaS, which reportedly enables businesses to select the devices, data packages and terms of service that best fit their businesses and employees' needs. Unmatched in the wireless industry, Mobility-as-a-Service by Sprint takes the hassle out of equipping a workforce with wireless devices. With cost-effective and predictable pricing starting as low as $20 per month per employee, businesses simply pick a device, a data plan and a service term. Sprint delivers the devices, provides basic configuration and includes additional dedicated customer support.

Dish And T-Mobile Reported Merger Talks Stalled

T-Mobile US, Inc. (NYSE:TMUS) and Dish Network Corp. (NasdaqGS:DISH) have stalled their merger talks over price and structure. Dish Network Corp. talks to acquire T-Mobile US Inc. from Deutsche Telekom AG (DB:DTE) have stalled over concerns related to valuation and structure, people with knowledge of the matter said. The lack of momentum calls into question whether any transaction will get done this year or at all, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. Dish and Deutsche Telekom would want to iron out an agreement in the next two or three months before focusing on the auction, the people said, and the halt in talks has made that timeframe unlikely. Deutsche Telekom has told Dish what kind of offer it wants and so far Dish hasn’t met that demand. Deutsche Telekom doesn’t need to sell T-Mobile now because the business has performed well in recent quarters, the people said. There’s a chance other buyers, such as Comcast Corporation (NasdaqGS:CMCS.A), Altice S.A. (ENXTAM:ATC) and Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) could make a bid for T-Mobile in a new U.S. presidential administration, giving Deutsche Telekom more reasons to wait on selling, the people said. A spokesman for Deutsche Telekom declined to comment on the status of any potential talks, as did a spokesman for Dish.
