AT&T has two-pronged plan to keep T-Mobile merger alive

At the start of the merger process, many people though that the merger of AT&T and T-Mobile would be an easy thing. Some of the competitors weren't happy at all at the prospect, specifically a yellow firm that bet big on WiMax. This week the Department of Justice filed a complaint over the deal citing anti-trust concerns and the FCC has some serious misgivings about the merger as well. AT&T isn’t going to let its plans die that easily though.

AT&T faces US antitrust complaint over T-Mobile merger

AT&T may be working hard insisting that it's in users' best interest for the T-Mobile acquisition to go ahead, but it's a long way from convincing regulators. The Department of Justice has filed an antitrust complaint in an attempt to block the merger, Bloomberg reports, arguing that it would "substantially lessen competition" in the US wireless market. Meanwhile, the FCC has waded in as well, with chairman Julius Genachowski revealing that the agency also has "serious concerns" about the deal.

AT&T / T-Mobile Merger Getting No Rubber Stamps from Senate

Yesterday, the US Senate held a hearing on the AT&T / T-Mobile merger, titled "Is Humpy-Dumpty Being Put Back Together Again?”.

Sprint and T-Mobile Merger a Possibility Thanks to Logic, According to Dan Hesse

Right now, Sprint is sitting high with all of their 4G talk. They've got their first 4G phone out there in the wild, and they've got 4G popping up in cities all over the United States. And while at this very moment they're using the same technology that Clearwire is (WiMAX), apparently that's still not stopping them from thinking about transitioning to LTE (Long Term Evolution) some time in the future. On top of that, a T-Mobile merger apparently holds a lot of logic.

Dish, T-Mobile tipped to be in merger talk

Dish Network, claimes to be the nation's 2nd biggest cable provider, and T-Mobile, the very outspoken fourth player in the country's "four carrier" wireless industry (at least according to the FCC) are said to be discussing a possible merger scenario, with some claiming a very positive outcome for the two companies is close at hand. If true, the industry could witness one of the biggest mergers between traditional media and communications companies, both of which are being threatened by the growing strength of the Internet.

T-Mobile CEO may be hinting a merger is coming their way

For quite some time, T-Mobile has been rumored for a merger or buyout. AT&T, Sprint, Dish, Iliad — you name them, T-Mobile has probably been rumored or in talks for a merger or acquisition. While T-Mobile CEO John Legere likes to slap away all talk of T-Mobile falling under the auspice of another company — and has even said he’s tired of talking mergers and acquisitions — he’s now making overtures that’s it’s inevitable, much like his boss has. In fact, Legere thinks it’s precisely how the industry will shake out over time.
