    Should the FCC block the AT&T, T-Mobile merger?

    Fear of a mobile carrier duopoly struck the U.S. when AT&T announced its
    plans


    to acquire T-Mobile from parent company Deutsche Telecom. Though there may be some that support this acquisition (or a general sense of apathy), most websites’ comments prove that people are very much against the proposed acquisition. People are not the only ones against such possible merger though, as Sprint has firmly stood against the AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile since the beginning.


    Further proving that it will do anything possible to stop the merger, Sprint has recently filed an official opposition to the FCC. Through this

    If I remember correctly, AT&T was forced to change their ways years ago. I think this was when all the "Bell" companies came out. Now AT&T is getting bigger and bigger again.

    Do I think the FCC is going to step in and say something? I have no idea. I mean, if T-Mobile and AT&T merge, then that means Verizon and Sprint could merge too, right? Then there would be two national carriers to choose from.
