Yeah Charter would help capacity for Sprint's area coverage where Charter is present and help Charter expand to new markets with Sprint fixed wireless. Charter could offer OTT TV (like Sling, DTV Now) over fixed wireless as Sprint has more than enough 2500 spectrum. But they need enough backhaul fr every site to act as an ISP doing IPTV. It could be a good marriage but Charter isn't exactly rolling in the dough and poorly executed the other mergers (TWC and Brighthouse).

Now that the Tmobile/Sprint merger discussions seem to be completely over with, Sprint plans to invest supposedly $5B-$6B/year in network going forward. Could mean more jobs in KC too. And if Charter merger happens, overlapping jobs will be very small compared to Tmobile.
