The Justice Department met Friday with the founder of Boost Mobile to discuss his views for how to set up a new wireless competitor that would resolve the U.S.’s concerns about T-Mobile US Inc.’s proposed acquisition of Sprint Corp.

Peter Adderton, who’s interested in bidding for the prepaid wireless brand now owned by Sprint, said in an interview that he outlined steps the department’s antitrust division needs to take to ensure Boost can be a successful competitor in the market.
