Report: Sprint has backing from 2 banks for T-Mobile bid

    Analysts continue to be skeptical about a potential deal's chances.
    "This deal would face a stiff regulatory review. There are concessions
    that could better the odds, but we think the chances of approval are
    less than 50%," New Street Research analyst Jonathan Chaplin wrote in
    a research note. "For example enabling a new entrant like [Dish
    Network (NASDAQ: DISH)], and/or retaining the maverick [T-Mobile
    management] would help. Despite less than even odds, we believe that
    SoftBank may be willing to attempt a deal, if they can structure it to
    lower the cost of failure.
