AT&T to Challenge DOJ Decision in Court

AT&T expressed surprise and dismay at the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit seeking to block its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA. AT&T is seeking an expedited court hearing.

Wayne Watts, AT&T Senior Executive Vice President and General Counsel, stated:

"At the end of the day, we believe facts will guide any final decision and the facts are clear. This merger will:

* Help solve our nation's spectrum exhaust situation and improve wireless service for millions.

* Allow AT&T to expand 4G LTE mobile broadband to another 55 million Americans, or 97% of the population;

* Result in billions of additional investment and tens of thousands of jobs, at a time when our nation needs them most."http://www.att.com
