Re: T-Mobile would make more sense. Yeah I can't tell if this is serious interest or if each party is using this to pressure partners (Verizon for cheaper sharing, T-Mobile for a lower price). I do think a Comcast/Charter funded Sprint is a better outcome for consumers than eliminating a competitor under a Sprint/T-Mobile union, provided those companies can get the customer service aspect correct.

T-Mobile would make more sense. So the cablecos bought 600MHz at auction, while Sprint sat it out to focus on 2.5GHz. That already doesn't make much sense. Now T-Mobile did *buy* nationwide 600MHz and plans to use it to deploy nationwide 5G ASAP (2019). Ergo, if there was a deal T-Mobile would make more sense here.

This reads like a tactic to put pressure on VRZ more than anything. That's my first read.
