    T-Mobile just agreed to the CPUC conditions to get it off the table, then go back later to adjust. Maintaining all the retail stores was never realistic, nor the 5G coverage timetable.

    I don't know that I ever saw that T-Mobile agreed to the conditions. I saw CPUC issue the conditions, but I didn't see T-Mobile accept them.

    Basically the merger was going through and the CPUC didn't have the ability to stop it. This quote from the statement in the article would suggest there were other things that T-Mobile never agreed to:

    "“Our jobs commitment has not changed. The CPUC mandated an additional 1,000 jobs beyond T-Mobile’s commitment to California and our filing clarifies that the Commission has no authority to do so. "

    The CPUC is a government agency and just shoves out what they want, sort of like a court of law. It is not the same as a business contract. Hard to say if T-Mobile actually tried to negotiate during the final hearings, or just let it slide to fight another day.

    Yeah but is that as many jobs as both TM & Sprint combined had? Or just as many jobs as TM alone had?

    Combined. You have to make allowances for brevity in a tweet...

    The LA Times isn't convinced, though...

    "Column: With its Sprint merger in the bag, T-Mobile is already backing away from its promises..."
