Last July, 10 attorneys general sent a letter to the Department Justice and Federal Communications Commission in support of AT&T’s merger with T-Mobile. Today, those same attorneys general reenforced their support. From their new letter to the DOJ and FCC:
Within the last two weeks, AT&T announced that in connection with the merger it would bring 5,000 jobs back to the U.S. and it committed to no job losses for wireless call center workers at AT&T and T-Mobile on the payroll at the closing of the merger. We again urge both DOJ and the FCC to focus on ways to resolve specific competitive concerns so this merger can proceed and deliver the significant benefits not only for wireless consumers, but also for investment and jobs that will support economic growth.
