AT&T Evaluates Options with T-Mobile USA Bid

AT&T and Deutsche Telekom filed a court motion seeking to stay further proceedings regarding its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA until January 18, 2012, to allow the two companies time to evaluate all options. The U.S. Department of Justice joined in the filing.

“AT&T is committed to working with Deutsche Telekom to find a solution that is in the best interests of our respective customers, shareholders and employees. We are actively considering whether and how to revise our current transaction to achieve the necessary regulatory approvals so that we can deliver the capacity enhancements and improved customer service that can only be derived from combining our two companies' wireless assets.�?
