One of the requirements instituted by the DOJ for allowing the T-Mobile/Sprint deal was the selling off of Sprint’s prepaid business. The DOJ considered this a good faith effort to ensure competition stays fierce in wireless. Now, the deal that will see Boost Mobile and other Sprint MVNOs sold to Dish is final.
There were some problems getting to the deal, though. Apparently, Dish wanted some of the valuations modified due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not clear what concessions were made, if any, but it appears the DOJ stepped in to help T-Mobile and Dish negotiate the deal.
