Sprint and T-Mobile are getting closer to becoming a single merged company.

T-Mobile plans to light up its 5G network on Dec. 6 and, with it, is making long-term commitments to low-income families and first responders.

The nation’s No. 3 wireless carrier plans to give away internet access to low-income families with school-age kids. It is dropping its lowest-priced plan by half to $15 monthly for up to 2GB of high-speed data. And it announced a $7.7-billion, 10-year commitment to make unlimited talk, text and smartphone data free to first responders in the country.

CEO John Legere made these announcements in a webcast that seemed at least partly aimed at convincing the states still seeking to block T-Mobile’s merger with Sprint. The companies cleared major hurdles when both the Justice Department and Federal Communications Commission blessed the pairing.

These latest “Un-Carrier” initiatives, the first under what would be a post-merger “New T-Mobile,” remain contingent on the deal going through.
