T-Mobile US and Sprint have been given permission to go ahead with their proposed merger after national security reviews cleared the deal, which is now expected to be finalised in the first half of 2019.

American companies T-Mobile US and Sprint have cut a deal with US national security authorities to get a proposed merger approved, by agreeing to put a brake on using equipment from Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei.

US politicians want the government to investigate the somewhat tenuous links between telco Sprint and Chinese company Huawei as it considers a proposed merger between Sprint and T-Mobile.

Four telecommunications companies — the UAE's Etisalat, Singapore's Singtel, Japan's Softbank and Spain's Telefónica — have come together to form a Global Telco Security Alliance that will offer companies cyber security services.
