In an official announcement made on Wednesday, August 6, US wireless carrier Sprint said that it has shelved its plans to acquire smaller rival T-Mobile. In addition, Sprint also said that it is replacing its CEO Dan Hesse.

The announcement by Sprint about its abandoned pursuit of T-Mobile came two days after the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) opposed the plans of the two carriers to jointly bid on wireless spectrum in a 2015 auction.
