From the better-late-than-never department, Sprint has issued a press release officially opposing
the planned AT&T purchase of T-Mobile

. There have been rumors of a Sprint/T-mobile merger for more than a year, which either weren't true or just didn't pan out, but Sprint believes a T-Mobile/AT&T merger "would entrench AT&T’s and Verizon’s duopoly control over the wireless market."

Sprint doesn't address what will be AT&T's biggest ally in the fight -- the fact that the plan would
enable mobile broadband to 95 percent of the people in the US, including rural areas

. That's big on our President's agenda, and sure to be more than just a bullet point when AT&T presents to the Dept. of justice.

I'm a T-Mobile subscriber, but at this point I don't care who I make the check out to, as this is likely the only way I'll ever see LTE where I live. Let's just hope it doesn't end up costing me an arm and a leg. Hit the break for the full press release.
