Sprint States Opposition to AT&T + T-Mobile USA

Sprint officially announced its opposition to AT&T's proposed $39 billion takeover of T-Mobile USA, which would create a competitor that would be almost three times the size of Sprint in terms of wireless revenue.

"Sprint urges the United States government to block this anti-competitive acquisition," said Vonya McCann, senior vice president, Government Affairs. "This transaction will harm consumers and harm competition at a time when this country can least afford it. As the first national carrier to roll out 4G services and handsets and the carrier that brought simple unlimited pricing to the marketplace, Sprint stands ready to compete in a truly dynamic marketplace. So on behalf of our customers, our industry and our country, Sprint will fight this attempt by AT&T to undo the progress of the past 25 years and create a new Ma Bell duopoly."
