California state regulators are trying to hold up the T-Mobile/Sprint merger, saying the companies don't yet have approval to combine their operations in the state.

T-Mobile and Sprint announced yesterday that the merger is a done deal and that the two companies are now one. But while the companies had almost all approvals from government authorities, they have not yet gotten the expected approval from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The CPUC is scheduled to vote on the merger approval and related conditions on April 16.

In response to yesterday's T-Mobile/Sprint announcement, the CPUC issued a ruling that says the companies "shall not begin merger of their California operations until after the CPUC issues a final decision on the pending applications."

    T-Mobile completes Sprint merger, John Legere leaves CEO job a month early

T-Mobile completed its $31 billion acquisition of Sprint today and announced that CEO John Legere has resigned from the carrier's top job a month sooner than planned.

With today's close, T-Mobile said it has "successfully completed its long-planned Chief Executive Officer transition from John Legere to Mike Sievert ahead of schedule." T-Mobile had previously said Legere would leave at the end of April.

"I had originally planned to stay on through the end of my contract on April 30, 2020, but it makes much more sense to transition this responsibility to Mike today," Legere said. Legere "will continue as a member of the Board of Directors for the remainder of his current term, through the Annual Meeting of Shareholders scheduled in June 2020," the carrier said.

    Berlin Online XMPP Sprint 2020

    debacle · pubsub.movim.eu / berlin-xmpp-meetup · Sunday, 22 March - 00:47 edit

Berlin Online XMPP Sprint 2020

The planned XMPP sprint in Berlin from Thursday, 2020-03-26 to Sunday, 2020-03-29, will take place despite the current crisis. But instead of an in-person meeting, it will be an online event!

We will mainly use the XMPP group chat xmpp:xmpp-sprint@chat.cluxia.eu?join for all coordination, and multiple Jitsi instances for audio/video conferencing, maybe also mumble for voice chat.

Please find all details in the wiki and consider participation! This time, there are neither travel nor hotel costs! https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Sprints/2020_March_Berlin

See you at the Berlin Online XMPP Sprint! Berlin is whereever you are!
