T-Mobile tries to woo regulators on Sprint merger with promise of amazing 5G home internet

T-Mobile says it will launch a 5G home Internet service with fast speeds, easy installation and low prices that will reach half of all US households. UU Over a period of five years and will significantly shake the unfortunately anticompetitive cable industry. There's only one problem: T-Mobile says this only comes true if its merger with Sprint is approved.

In a blog post and presentation of the Federal Communications Commission today, T-Mobile describes in detail what its 5G home Internet service looks like. The company began to disclose some details about the offer last September, but with the blog post written by today's CEO, T-Mobile is beginning to announce its promises in a much more public way.

T-Mobile says it plans to create a true competing cable with 5G, which offers speeds of 100 Mbps or more. It will have a lower cost and not specified, and customers can configure the system themselves, so they will not have to wait for someone to install it. T-Mobile believes it can have 9.5 million customers within five years and save them up to $ 13 billion in that time due to increased competition.

It's an exciting image, but what you have to remember is that this is a great and beautiful dream that T-Mobile is describing to get its approval fusion.

If T-Mobile and Sprint merge, the United States will be reduced from four large wireless service providers. to three. The former FCC leader repeatedly said that four operators are necessary to maintain a competitive environment. And although the current leader does not seem to believe it, this general concern is an important element of what is delaying the 10-month merger agreement.

Argue that the wireless industry will be more competitive with one less competitor is difficult (T-Mobile, of course, has done it anyway). So, instead, T-Mobile is trying to make it look like the merger will dramatically increase competition in another industry : Internet at home.

It's not the worst argument. The cable industry is more or less monopoly after monopoly. Almost half of all households lack a second option for cable broadband service, if they have a choice in the first place. Because these 5G networks would be substantially wireless, companies such as T-Mobile could move quickly to areas that cable companies have long avoided due to the challenges and expenses associated with cable installation.

The current FCC has even indicated that it considers wireless technology as an alternative to cable broadband, since it can have comparable speeds. That's not how it actually works: Wireless speeds are still slower in general and much more expensive, but T-Mobile describes a future in which it is not and wireless technology is really a legitimate alternative to cable Internet.

It's an argument that regulators are eager to hear. The question is: is the merger of Sprint really necessary for all this to happen? AT & T and Verizon are investing in many of the same 5G technologies as T-Mobile. Verizon has even launched a 5G home internet pilot service already. So, it's not as if T-Mobile was the only company capable of doing this.

T-Mobile mentions the use of Sprint waves to provide this service, which helps reinforce their argument that fusion is necessary for their own deployment. But it is not clear if those waves are really critical. In its FCC file, T-Mobile says the deployment "produces a very large increase in capacity at one time" and that "much of it is available to provide a fixed wireless broadband service." But that is combined with other airwaves that T-Mobile already has.

To begin, T-Mobile says that "soon" will begin testing a wireless Internet service at home using its LTE network. After the merger, says T-Mobile, it will be updated to include 5G.

The plans almost echo what is happening at Verizon, which has halted its plans to roll out the Internet at home 5G until the end of this year. These companies are clearly looking forward to making the most of their investments in 5G. But for now, the change to Internet delivery at home is still just a speech in which no one is moving forward.
