T-Mobile’s $26.5 billion takeover of Sprint could mean higher or lower phone bills, depending on whom you ask. A federal judge in New York ultimately took T-Mobile’s track record of aggressive competition into account in ruling Tuesday that the deal would help consumers. In doing so, he rejected a challenge by a group of states worried about reduced competition. T-Mobile expects to close the deal as early as April 1. What will a combined T-Mobile-Sprint company mean for you and your phone bill? Probably not a lot in the short term, but longer-term implications are less clear.
