More Support

By Brad

Earlier this week, House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith voiced his support for the merger of AT&T and T-Mobile. Now, The Hill‘s Gautham Nagesh reports Senators Mike Lee and John Cornyn — two members of the Judiciary Committee’s Antitrust subpanel — have joined him:

“Based on the evidence available to the Subcommittee, there are a number of reasons why a merger between AT&T and T-Moble may prove to be a positive step along the path to world-class wireless broadband throughout the United States,” the pair wrote.

“Some of this evidence suggests that the merger would provide significant and immediate efficiencies enabling enhanced service quality, expanded network capacity, and increased data speeds.”
