Sprint planning to buy T-Mobile? http://j.mp/1hRSilT (The Verge) "That said, such a merger would likely face a huge uphill regulatory battle; antitrust authorities could be concerned that the elimination of a fourth large nationwide wireless operator could be anticompetitive. It's been nearly two years since AT&T gave up on its plans to purchase T-Mobile, a potential deal that had been fraught with difficulty as the FCC decided that the merger was not in the public interest. If Sprint did manage to purchase T-Mobile, it would have a combined postpaid subscriber base of about 53 million customers - still trailing far behind AT&T and Verizon. That might make regulators more likely to let the deal pass, but there's little doubt Sprint should gear up for a battle if it wants to make this purchase." - - - Could happen, though there are several reasons to be at least skeptical. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org/pfir-info Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com/privacy-info Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://google.com/+LaurenWeinstein Twitter: http://twitter.com/laurenweinstein Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
