Feb. 7 (Bloomberg) -- SoftBank’s billionaire founder Masayoshi Son and Sprint CEO Dan Hesse plan to decide in the next few weeks whether to move ahead on a bid for T-Mobile after speaking with U.S. regulators, people with knowledge of the matter said.

Their indented so public, why?

This is a massive pr campaign.

They have to get politicians and consumer groups on the idea of sprint combining with t-mobile because we already know that justice has signaled they are down on the deal.

They have to determine whether or not they're going to get the kind of support to go ahead and move forward on the deal.

Without it there is some concern that they are not going to move ahead without that support area to put this into context, even if there are some positive thing all's from justice at the end of the day, or the fcc, that does not necessarily mean that they will sign off at the deal -- on the deal.

With the airways merger, both sides up they were on a good path -- thought they were on a good path, and then they were slammed in the end.

How is softbank defending the deal?

T-mobile independently has been doing so well but they are growing market share more than any other wireless company out there right now.

They are taking share from at&t, so they are on fire.

At a something that regulators are going to point to come a have already pointed to, and are saying that they are doing what we wanted them to do independently when we shot down at&t's bid to buy t-mobile.

When at&t was trying to buy t-mobile must print said they cannot do that because we need an independent t-mobile to spark competition.

Now they're going back on that but seeing big -- that, saying that if you combine sprayed with t-mobile uma super maverick company, better position to compete with the super giant at&t and verizon companies.

It is a competition between all three of them.

Thank you, cristina alesci on the softbank.

For t-mobile -- bid on t-mobile.

Coming up, the company known for connecting job seekers with others is getting its own career bump.
