Despite the fact that the merger has been completed, the two brands continued to operate individually. But this may change very soon.
In aninvestor conferenceheld earlier this week, New T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert talked about their upcoming plans for the unified company. According to the executive, they originally planned to launch the New T-Mobile brand in early summer but the health crisis pushed this release to mid-summer. Once the brand is launched, it"will essentially be advertising one flagship postpaid T-Mobile brand as well as operating a unified fleet of retail, and the retail piece is why we slowed down just a little bit."
Since they merged, T-Mobile actually started combining its network with Sprint. This was also the time when T-Mobile launched its 2.5GHz 5G coverage in Philadelphia. They used the spectrum acquired from Sprint, which also allowed Sprint customers using a Galaxy S20 to use T-Mo's low-band 600MHz 5G network. The launch also allowed Sprint customers with compatible LTE devices to use roaming under the LTE network of T-Mobile.
The entire process of integrating the two will take up to 3 years.
