Sprint counter offer just a ploy

Sprint needs to focus on the LTE/Network Vision rollout. A merger would be distracting, raise the debt and wouldn't improve assets that much. They are just playing an offer to try and raise price for Tmob. When T-Metro struggles with the merger, and they will, many will hop over to Sprint.

If T-Metro proves to be effective post-merger, Sprint could then consider Leap, but they don't need to address that for another year or 3.

Metro customers won't move to Sprint. They're not with them now due to cost. Otherwise they wouldn't be in business. TMO-USA taking Metro customers won't be that hard. It's easy to stop selling Metro phones and drop TMO's in the stores. Rebrand everything and give customers discounts on buying new phones. Hell, TMO lets you already bring your own device. Something Sprint DOES NOT and makes you buy a new one and brings out the contract. VM doesn't offer a contract, but also does NOT roam out side of the Sprint network; unlike their MVNOs that now have that option (StraightTalk, Ting, etc).

Your a trip how much your hate for sprint blinds you from reality.
