Wisconsin joins states trying to block merger Submitted: 06/11/2019
Madison - People who use Sprint or T-Mobile could see those providers combine. Wisconsin's attorney general hopes to stop it from happening.

Wisconsin joined eight other states and Washington, D.C. in filing a lawsuit to block the merger. Sprint and T-Mobile say they need to "bulk up" to offer a 5G network and compete with Verizon and AT and T.

Attorney generals claim the 26.5 billion dollar merger would drive up prices and lead to job cuts.
