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.

By: t-marco May 11th, 2011

Sprint  is the first and one of the most important wireless companies that is against AT&T-T-Mobile acquisition. Sprint does not want the be way behind if the proccess passes FCC and be the third in place, only controlling less than 20% of the wireless industry. That is why Sprint has just  used was  this ad, mocking T-Mobile’s own recent ads featuring a brunette in a pink dress — mocking AT&T and Verizon as old, white balding men.

The ad, which features a cigar-smoking man in a similar pink dress, used the tagline “It makes sense if you don’t think about it,” and complains the deal will result in less innovation and higher prices. However, the ad — funded in part by Sprint and supported by groups like Public Knowledge and Media Access Project.

AT&T this morning heads before the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights to defend their planned acquisition of T-Mobile.

We will wait to hear from you AT&T.
