T-Mobile promises a new $15 wireless plan if its $26.5 billion Sprint deal goes through.

T-Mobile is also promising free internet to emergency first responders for 10 years and to low-income households with children for five years. The $15 plan is for anyone, but comes with just 2 gigabytes of data per month.

Regulators could fine T-Mobile for breaking the earlier , but T-Mobile isn't legally required to fulfill the new ones.
