Sprint and C Spire can continue suing to stop AT&T and T-Mobile merger, says judge


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?

    I wish the government would break Ma Bell up again, and this time pass some laws to ensure they can’t reassemble themselves like some kind of patchwork anti-competition zombie.

    Break Verizon up while they’re at it, too. Both of these companies have reached the “too big to fail” stage, which we all know is very, very dangerous.
