Sprint and T-Mobile announced plans for a merger deal Sunday that would leave just three major wireless carriers in the U.S. T-Mobile CEO John Legere told CNBC that the merger would bring about broader services, lower prices and higher speeds. But consumer advocates worry that a merger could have the opposite effect.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson discusses the possible implications with Derek Thompson (@DKThomp), senior editor at The Atlantic.
