Sprint Scores Judge’s Approval for Suit Against AT&T/T-Mobile Deal

Posted In News - By Mark Hearn On Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 5:15am PST With 4 Comments

U.S. District Judge Ellen Huvelle has ruled to let Sprint move forward with their antitrust suit against AT&T’s $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile. However Judge Huvelle did agree to dismiss Sprint’s claims that an AT&T/T-Mobile merger would result in them having trouble acquiring wireless airwaves to service their customers. AT&T’s Senior VP Wayne Watts stated that Huvelle’s ruling did dismiss “the vast majority of the claims” from Sprint and C Spire. This is definitely not a┬átotal victory, but Sprint has received the needed momentum to continue in their fight against AT&T’s buyout efforts to become the No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier. Between this and the U.S. Department of Justice’s ongoing suit to block AT&T and T-Mobile’s deal, we’re pretty sure that Dan Hesse is somewhere smiling.

    Awesome! Maybe the judicial system can stop the duopoly (at&t/Verizon). Where is the FCC? Oh yea, the FCC is monitoring XM/Sirius.

  2. Jason Styles says:

    I support Sprint and smaller carriers

    I really hope Sprint loses this battle, painfully. Screwing over their customers, and now screwing over other companies. Great job, Sprint.
