Groups Urges FCC To Stop The T-Mobile/Sprint Merger
According to a report by Broadcasting & Cable, opponents of the T-Mobile-Sprint merger claim that it's in the public interest for the companies to not solidify the deal, and urged the FCC not to approve it.
Opponents of the deal reportedly said, "Our nation’s antitrust and telecommunications laws set a purposefully high bar for mergers that consolidate a market to this degree." B&C reports that the group did not offer conditions that would make the deal acceptable, flatly stating that the deal needs to be rejected.
This week, reports circulated claiming the Justice Department may have issues with the deal, despte T-Mobile CEO John Legere saying that was not the case.
