Sprint Nextel Wants States to Review AT&T – T-Mobile acquisition

By: t-marco May 20th, 2011

Sprint Nextel Corp  said it wants state agencies in California and West Virginia to follow Louisiana in scrutinizing AT&T’s  proposed purchase of T- Mobile USA.  Third-largest U.S. wireless carrier Sprint filed a request with the California Public Utilities Commission yesterday requesting an investigation into the $39 billion transaction, the company said in an e-mail.

At the same time USA Today opposes AT&T, T-Mobile merger: An editorial in USA Today blasts the proposed AT&T and T-Mobile merger as a step toward a duopoly in the wireless industry that would lead to poor customer service and higher prices.

“This transaction is bad for consumers and bad for the economy, and we look forward to having some regulatory sunshine cast upon it,” John Taylor, a spokesman for Overland Park, Kansas-based Sprint, said in an interview. California and West Virginia should open reviews, as Louisiana has, he said.

Sprint on May 2 asked the West Virginia Public Service Commission to review the deal. AT&T in a May 12 filing asked the agency to reject that request, saying Sprint offers limited service in the state.
