T-Mobile lays off 200 Sprint employees in Kansas City area

T-Mobile will lay off over 200 Sprint employees in the Kansas City area. The move follows the companies’ $26 billion merger, The Kansas City Star reports.

T-Mobile notified state regulators in Kansas that it plans to cut 241 positions from the former Sprint headquarters.

The merger was approved in April, following a lawsuit challenging it from over a dozen states.

T-Mobile said the merger would create thousands of new jobs across the country, but that the company will refocus its resources as needed.

Both T-Mobile and Sprint said that the merger was the only way either could compete with AT&T and Verizon.
