U.S. government files to block T-Mobile and AT&T merger

The AT&T and T-Mobile deal has caused quite a furor in the wireless space with Sprint concerned about the loss of a competitor and T-Mobile customers concerned about loss of excellent customer service.

I just read over on Bloomberg that the U.S. government filed court papers to block the AT&T purchase of T-Mobile so this is not yet a done deal. I know many of us long time T-Mobile customers have been worried about the purchase since we get excellent customer service and are quite happy with the coverage and handset selection we currently have. As a person who has tried AT&T a couple times in the past, they are not the company for my wireless service and I hope we don't see them taking over T-Mobile.

“AT&T’s elimination of T-Mobile as an independent, low- priced rival would remove a significant competitive force from the market,” the U.S. said in its filing.

AT&T delivered their proposal to the FCC back in July, with several carriers and companies opposing the deal.
