Sprint on AT&T/T-Mobile Merger

Sprint doc to FCC blasts AT&T/T-Mobile deal - Eliza Krigman - POLITICO.com: "The public interest benefits of the transaction that AT&T has claimed, such as relieving network congestion, are illusory, Sprint argues.

“If AT&T has capacity constraints, they are the result of its failure to upgrade and invest in its network,” Sprint wrote.

Further, Sprint claims that AT&T could deliver broadband to 97 percent of the country — the most widely touted benefit of the deal — by spending a fraction of the $39 billion AT&T plans to pay for T-Mobile.

“In the absence of the proposed transaction, competition likely will drive AT&T to reach” the 97 percent target anyway, Sprint posits"
