Mobile Shares New Details on Proposed Merger with Sprint

T-Mobile plans to give unlimited free 5G to all first responders if merger is approved

T-Mobile plans to give unlimited free 5G to all first responders if merger is approved

T-Mobile hinted that this offer would only be possible once the network capacity and technology is improved following the proposed merger with Sprint, and the Un-Carrier is only taking names for the waitlist for now. Verizon is now charging extra for its 5G service.

If the companies don't make good on those promises within that six-year timeframe, though, they'll be required to make payments that could reach over $2 billion, the FCC says. "With the 5G network New T-Mobile will create, we can do our part to help say thanks", Legere said.

Rather than charging extra for 5G, this telecom will combine it with 4G service and lower the cost. And rather than in a few scattered areas, the service will be available to "more than 200 million Americans and more than 5,000 cities and towns across the country including millions in rural America", according to a statement from T-Mobile.

"A pricing move this aggressive will force the other guys to respond", he adds.

And T-Mobile will offer free wireless service and hotspots, along with lower-priced laptops and tablets, to 10 million USA families over five years.

And, the Connecting Heroes Initiative, which the company says would be a 10-year commitment to offer free 5G access including unlimited talk, text, and smartphone data to every public and nonprofit USA state and local police, fire, and EMS agency across the country. For personal plans, T-Mobile recently extended its military discount to first responders and anyone on their family plans. The idea is to bring internet access to kids who might not otherwise have it. All they need to do is sign up on T-Mobile's website and once the merger is done they will receive the benefits. "But these people have yet to realize that what they want is what we want", said Legere by way of trying to sell the merger.
