After AT&T announced plans on Sunday to purchase T-Mobile, many have questioned whether Sprint and Verizon would join forces as well in order to compete with what (if approved by the FCC) would be the largest mobile carrier in the US.
In an interview yesterday, Verizon CEO Daniel Mead said that it had no interest in buying Sprint, or joining forces with the company. “We’re not interested in Sprint. We don’t need them,” said Mead, in an interview with Reuters prior to CTIA.
He also said that he thought the AT&T/T-Mobile merger would eventually clear the FCC after AT&T gives up some of its current assets, saying “Anything can go through if you make enough concessions.”
What do you think? Should Verizon consider joining with Sprint, or is it better off on its own?
