Mississippi Settles Lawsuit Against Sprint & T-Mobile

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Attorney General Jim Hood says Mississippi will settle its part of a lawsuit that opposed the merger of cellular companies T-Mobile and Sprint. The merger is awaiting final federal approval; fourteen states and the District of Columbia were part of the action. Under the Mississippi agreement, the new company will make a next-generation “5G” network available to at least 62% of the state’s general and rural populations within three years of the merger and the fast service will be available to over 88% of the state’s population within six years. A Democrat running for governor, Hood says better internet access will help with education and economic development.
