T-Mobile previews post-merger plans

T-Mobile on Thursday previewed a set of new offerings that will become available if the wireless provider’s merger with Sprint overcomes its final legal hurdle.

The announcements came two days after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) formally approved the merger of the country’s third- and fourth-largest U.S. wireless providers.

The deal is still facing a roadblock as a group of 17 state attorneys general forge ahead in their lawsuit to prevent it.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere laid out several new programs and commitments that the company will offer if that lawsuit is resolved.

The Connecting Heroes Initiative would give free unlimited talk, text and 5G internet for law enforcement, fire and EMS services.

Project 10million, meanwhile, would aim to close the “homework gap” by investing $10 billion in providing free internet to 10 million households

The carrier also introduced its cheapest plan to date: $15 per month for unlimited talk, text and 2GB of data.
