T-Mobile US asks California to ease conditions imposed during merger with Sprint

Wednesday 24 June 2020 | 09:48 CET | News
T-Mobile US has filed a request to California's Public Utilities Commission, asking for an easing of certain conditions imposed on the company when the state cleared its takeover of Sprint. Among the commitments, the operator said it would add at least 1,000 jobs in California, compared to the total number of Sprint and T-Mobile US employees pre-merger, and that it would provide 5G, with speeds of at least 100 Mbps, to virtually all (99%) of the state's population by end 2026, with 300 Mbps provided to 93 percent by 2024.
