Whenever I revist the AT&T and T-Mobile merger, it seems that I'm reporting on something that may cause the merger to fall through. Today is no exception to that tradition, as a judge has ruled that both Sprint and C Spire can continue their joint lawsuit to stop the merger right in its tracks.
Wednesday night (November 2nd) saw Judge Ellen Segal Huvell ruled that since both Sprint and C Spire accurately demonstrated that they'd be injured if the merger went through, the two companies could continue with their joint lawsuit.
I am an advocate of competition, so whenever something comes up about the government and other people/entities stepping in to stop this merger, I'm incredibly happy. In my opinion, the AT&T and T-Mobile merger will completely destroy the competition by creating a large, GSM monopoly here in the US.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited or even happy about the thought of AT&T and T-Mobile becoming one company?[Gigaom]
