T-Mobile, Dish, Sprint— Shares of T-Mobile, Dish and Sprint rose 1%, about 2% and nearly 4% respectively after CNBC’s David Faber reported that Dish and T-Mobile have agreed to a divestiture deal that brings the wireless carrier closer to getting government approval of its merger with Sprint, citing sources.
