With Donald Trump's victory, two key wireless players seem convinced of a Sprint (NYSE: S)/T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS) merger, although the market appears less sanguine.

Last week, wireless tower provider American Tower (NYSE: AMT) issued an update on its exposure regarding the possibility of a merger between Sprint and T-Mobile US. Today, SBA Communications (NASDAQ: SBAC) provided a similar update.

While it is doubtful the two have insider information on a merger, they are trying to get ahead of the curve so investors know their exposure is limited if such a scenario were to take place. They've also been around the wireless block so probably have a 'gut-feel' on a potential deal.
