Sprint Receives Subpoenas From Nine States Over T-Mobile Deal

While Sprint may be at the forefront of the AT&T/T-Mobile opposition they aren’t alone in facing scrutiny from the government over the deal. It’s been confirmed via Reuters that Sprint has received subpoenas from nine states in connection with the anti-trust review of AT&T’s takeover of T-Mobile. A letter dated June 28th to the FCC Sprint stated it had received the subpoenas and civil investigation demands for all the materials it has submitted over the AT&T deal.

Sprint has been an unsung albeit unusual hero for the T-Mobile faithful with strong opposition against the AT&T takeover of T-Mobile. While Sprint may have its own end game driving its movements, they remain one of the loudest voices right now when the topic turns to the FCC and DOJ review. Let’s hope that Sprint can continue to combat the deal and eventually force its demise.

    where is the driving force of the people. tmobile customers can’t really actually be going for this.

    • Onumis

      The majority of consumers don’t give a crap.  Only people who follow news for android and read online articles really care.  You ask the average mom that AT&T is trying to buy T-Mobile and I bet they don’t have a clue to what you’re talking about.

        Another lie from a misinformed Sprint lover.
        AT&T cannot make you get a new phone on their contract. You simply buy that new phone off contract and don’t sign a AT&T contract for a subsidized new phone.
        That way AT&T has to honor your original T-Mobile contract until it expires or let you go with no ETF.

    Is there an implication here that Sprint does really hope to end the deal, but actually ingratiate themselves with current T-mo customers in order to siphon off those who don’t want to be a part of ATT-mo? …because it’s working on me! Actually, with the choice down to Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. It’s not really a choice for me no matter what Sprint does.

    AT&T customers should enjoy increased coverage and reliability
    which cannot be ignored, but in my mind this is far outweighed by the
    potential pitfalls for customers:
    Less competition means less
    innovation (T-Mobile USA was the first to launch an Android Phone, a
    testament to the underdog taking risks whereas the industry giants can
    afford to play “wait-and-see” or become complacent with their current
    offerings)Less competition means fewer choices (fewer devices, less service plan variety, etc…)

      “T-Mobile USA was the first to launch an Android Phone”

      True , but Verizon showed T-Mobile how to do it properly. Being first don’t mean squat .
      Just get over it , T-Mobile is soon to be history and Sprint knows it as well.

      • Blahbot90

        Verizon also had the capital to do that whereas Tmo didn’t. Tmo now really has some of the fastest data speeds, even if their coverage lacks in “rural areas”. Its city coverage is pretty damn good.

        • Mopar6464

          But T-Mobile DT owns T-mobile USA and they have the capital.
          They choose a different marketing path back then and now it came back to bite them in the azz .

        • standroid

          Not to mention that DT has made it very clear that they no longer want TMo USA. Even if the ATT deal falls through (which is unlikely) DT will wash their hands of TMo USA one way or another; most likely to an investment firm or simply auction it off piece-meal. Going the ATT way would be less painful for the employees and the customers. As much as many may dislike it, the moment the announcement was made in March, it marked the end of T-Mobile USA within two years time.

        • tmNo

          Very true! Employeess of T-Mobile are already feeling the push. The employees are the ones that are going to suffer. Customers dont realize or care what happens to employees of the companies they work with it’s realy going to hurt everyone involved.

      • Anonymous

        Verizon hasn’t shown anything to anyone except clever marketing – when it comes to their droid devices, their rushed build and glitches don’t do anything for them  - e.g. Droid X, Droid Pro, Thunderbolt, Revolution, and onward.

        • Mopar6464

          What do think T-Mobile has been doing with their Android devices.
          Hell will freeze over before you can get a real Os update.

    Sprint is just another greedy company in America. They’re just hatin cause they didn’t get to acquire T-Mobile. They could give a rats ass about the consumer and they blame others for their own shortcomings. And Carly would never use Sprint! She’s smart enough to know that WiMAX is dead and 3D is a sad gimmick Sprint has to resort. Betcha Carly gets faster speeds on HSPA+ than Sprint WiMAX running off of garbage 2.5GHz spectrum which can’t even penetrate through a piece of toilet paper! Sprint should mind their own effing business and convert to LTE already
