Sprint was none too happy when they got the news that T-Mobile and MetroPCS had gotten together and planned a deal for a potential merger. After rumors that the Now Network was planning a counter-offer to MetroPCS, news today suggests that they might hold off on that offer without knowing what T-Mobile has up their sleeve.
Reports say that Sprint met with T-Mobile’s parent company, Detusche Telekom, to discuss the proposal and decided it would be better to wait. Once Deutsche Telekom and T-Mobile file the proposed deal there will be an amount of time that Sprint can take to look over the deal and think about how they want to proceed. This leaves the door open for Sprint to out-bid T-Mobile, but only time will tell who MetroPCS will end up with.
