It looks like we have another member to add to the Department of Justice’s growing army of supporters against the AT&T-T-Mobile merger. Cellular South, one of the smaller carriers in the country has expressed its displeasure against the proposed acquisition by filing a complaint against AT&T in federal court Washington yesterday. I guess nobody bought into AT&T’s plans of selling off its assets to smaller carriers so there won’t be a monopoly.
In the complaint filed by Cellular South, the carrier said that “The merger of AT&T and T-Mobile is anticompetitive, and will result in consumers facing higher prices, less innovation, fewer choices and reduced competition.” With the DoJ backed by seven states so far, Sprint - the No.3 carrier in the market, and now the addition of US Cellular, things really aren’t looking too good for the merger.
