WSJ: Sprint chairman, CEO want to meet with FCC
Sprint chairman Masayoshi Son and CEO Dan Hesse are expected to meet with the FCC this week to discuss the potential for a T-Mobile acquisition. The rumors of such a deal, as some know, have been circulating for more than a few months. As to why the duo want to meet with the government, the WSJ says it’s to convince the FCC that it’s better for consumer interest. According to a source, the chairman wants to argue that this would create a real competitor to Verizon and AT&T.
