For awhile now, when it's come to wireless providers, there's been AT&T, Verizon, and then everyone else. That might be about to change.

This story isn't over, though, as host Kieran Newton and IBISWorld analyst Jeremy Moses discuss. On this episode, we breakdown the state of the industry thus far, the new challenges facing the deal, and the potential consequences, good and bad, of it actually going through. It's a wild time for wireless providers!
