Cellular South Files Anti-Trust Lawsuit, Sues To Block AT&T Takeover Of T-Mobile

Following Sprint’s and the Department of Justice lead, regional carrier Cellular South has filed an anti-trust lawsuit hoping to block AT&T’s takeover of T-Mobile USA. According to Eric Graham, Cellular South Vice President for Strategic and Government relations a combined AT&T/T-Mobile would “substantially lesson competition” and “essentially consolidate the market into the hands of the ‘Big Two’ AT&T and Verizon.” Additionally, the carrier believes that higher roaming fees will result, innovation will be reduced along with consumer choice and due to exclusivity agreements regional carriers would have a tougher time getting the best products in a reasonable amount of time.

Sprint has already responded to Cellular South’s lawsuit:

Vonya B. McCann, Sprint’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, issued the following statement:

“Today Cellular South stands with the U.S. Department of Justice, seven state Attorneys General and Sprint in asking the Courts to protect American consumers from the harms to competition, innovation, and pricing that likely would result if AT&T is allowed to takeover T-Mobile. As this growing chorus of opposition shows, this proposed transaction violates antitrust law and is not in the best interests of consumers and the American economy.”

      Fear, uncertainty, doubt. Because AT&T has so much influence and power, probably no small company wanted to get blacklisted for blackballed by in their existing relationships with AT&T. There’s probably dog-piling going on, and some roundabout.

      It’s like the abused spouse syndrome.  It should be a sign to you now that if AT&T scares the little guys this much now, what would they be like if they get bigger?

        Sprint and cell south came out against att in the early congress hearings soon after the deal was announced, but none of these companies filed suit until the doj did. Sprints been the most vocal, so why didn’t they spearhead the lawsuit? Another thing that I find interesting here is that an antitrust lawsuit was filed before an antitrust violation took place. Att or dt hasn’t violated any antitrust laws as far as I know. Specifics of approval haven’t been hammered out yet, so I find it odd that a lawsuit could even be filed. I understand the little guys worrying about their future as well as the doj needing positive pr, but to me this is all kind of ridiculous. This is like minority report….precrime. if the doj and att agree to let a deal go through with 35% divest, would all these companies still be complaining? Would some of them back off if they benefit from the divesting of assets?

          Here’s some research www dot publicknowledge dot org/blog/whats-stake-doj-challenge-attt-mobile-future- that helped me understand it better. DoJ/FCC can block any acquisition/merger to harms competition or American interests.

  • Jaygqitalia

    Im surprised Verizon hasnt came out and tried to block it. They would go from Number 1 to Number 2

    • ogopogo

      It is in Verizon’s best interest to keep quiet on the matter. Their only angle (as the largest provider) is antitrust. They are already feeling some heat because they have been lumped into the “good ‘ol boy Bell network” with AT&T. The less spotlight on them, the better. The last thing that you want is for the government to start scrutinizing your monopoly.

    • Bimmerz

      Because they were secretly hoping it would go through, so that they could pounce on Sprint. (Just a guess, but I am betting this is the case.)

    • Auser72

      Verizon started out as Atlantic Bell. Atlantic Bell was one of the 7 baby bells of the ATT split because of their monopoly on telephone service. History does repeat itself. Same thing with Bell south <Cingular <Att. History truly does repeat itself!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Paul

      because they could use this takeover as an argument to do their own takeovers in the future

      • JBLMOBILEG1

        I agree because if it does go through and Sprint trys to sell to Verizon…. Verizon could come back and say… you approved the At&t deal… So what’s the deal why can’t we buy Sprint? After all there are still prepaid and regional carriers who by the way roam off of our network and At&t ONLY.

  • http://chreestoph.tumblr.com Chris

    The only company that really pisses me off here is Sprint. Look at the news about AT&T trying to come up w/ deals w/ these “smaller” companies, where Sprint was named to be one of these said companies, and when asked to comment on the matter, they refused. Yet, here they are, being the stinking instigator, that one lil short fat kid in the background, egging ppl on. Seems like Sprint will do whatever it takes to look good, but when AT&T throws them a bone they all of a sudden have nothing to say? Hmm…interesting.

    • BigMixxx

      Sprint always wanted to be at the table.  That’s what the major law suit….. 

    • http://twitter.com/reuthermonkey Jon

      because the bone that ATT no doubt threw Sprint was:
      1. After the DoJ lawsuit.
      2. for assets useless to Sprint
      3. A chicken bone.

    I’m actually surprised that Simple Mobile isn’t filing as well. Simple Mobile uses T-Mobile’s network. Without T-Mobile, there would be no Simple Mobile.

    • Stopsnitching

      yes there would, atnt would just take the riches…. its like tracfone they have agreements with atnt and tmobile to roam on there gsm towers.

      • ogopogo

        True statement – The only difference is the data speeds. Since Simple uses T-Mobile’s AWS, you won’t get the same speeds when roaming on an AT&T tower.

      They don’t want to upset Tmobile because Tmobile want the takeover

    • JBLMOBILEG1

      My guess is because like others said… they don’t want to upset Tmobile… So if it doesn’t go through and Tmobile continues they will be on their good side. Also for the fact that if it does go through my guess their hopes for striking a deal with At&t will be better since they didn’t complain about it. I guess for their situation they are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

      They see the writing on the wall, get in bed with AT&T or Verizon (During their cutover to gsm type technologies).

      It’s a shame though.  As T-mobile is releasing some good devices, this sort of thing starts to happen….

    Funny… I pretty much said all of this to a reply on an older post. I know what I am talking about and it looks like the CEO of one of the regional carriers agrees. I have been working in the wireless industry for years and most of the smaller carriers rely on the larger ones. Everything I said is pretty much mentioned in this article. DOJ do what you have to do and keep At&t away from Tmobile. I do not believe anything they say anymore and they have given everyone plenty of reasons not to.

I report T-Mobile related news and things that relate to the AT&T/T-Mobile deal are worthy of being reported. When there is phone news, I’ll report on it. You honestly can’t believe there is 365 days worth of phone news can you? News just doesn’t appear out of thin air but I’ll do my best to make some stuff up for you tomorrow just so I can post some completely fake but totally unrelated to the AT&T deal.

David posts EVERYTHING T-Mobile, not everything (insert your favorite mobile phone here). This is a cool site with so much info you can’t get anywhere else or at times will appear here first. I’d love to know about phones, don’t get me wrong that’s why i go to GSMarena.com for that but this ATT thing for me is serious stuff and i depend on this site for the latest news that TMOUSA wont share with the people that pay there bills.

          You don’t know it isn’t going to go through and the fact that people assume that shows a real lack of understanding as to how this process is going to work. We are a long way from being able to say this isn’t going go through and the sooner we all understand that, the better off we’re all going to be.

          You want reports on phones, great so do I but short of making them up out of thin air, there IS NOT phone news related to T-Mobile every day. That happens to be a real negative when you are considering the limited scope of a blog that is concerned with only one carrier. There simply isn’t enough news period for every day of the year which is why some days have no news at all. I’ll happily report phone news, when there is something to report.

    This is without a doubt the BEST website for anything related to T-MOBILE. If this Merger goes thru we won’t need phones from T-Mobile. I have followed this site for a long time and find it always up to date with just about everything you could want from T-MOBILE. It looks like this merger is taking on more and more big names to block this takeover. 

  • GeeMale

    David I like your site.  But lately nobody can have a different opinion without being called an idiot by none other than T-Mobile employees themselves.  

    Not all T-Mobile users are anti AT&T or anti iPhone or anti buyout/merger.  

    Just because someone disagrees with another poster or sees things differently it does not make them a troll.  

    An internet troll is someone who purposely tries to incite an argument.  I don’t know about you but if someone called me an idiot for expressing my viewpoint they are asking for trouble.  

    • http://tmonews.com David

      I understand that the comments are a little out of control and my little display to defend the site certainly didn’t help the cause. I can’t stop the T-Mobile employees from contributing and certainly we all want them to, that being said I understand that somehow the comments need to be reigned in and I’m trying to figure out a way to do just that. I’m heavily considering going to Facebook comments right now.

      • BigMixxx

        David, While I agree….some posts you must be able to defend.  If your post has no profound meaning at all, post it.  It’s fair.  If people are taking offense to certain things said, be ready to defend your argument.  Most importantly, if you read through the comments as I do, most people are making statements that make sense vs saying things on other boards (check out the engadget — title have been funny lately, bgr, gizmodo and read the comments, nothing but hatred and arguments toward either the author of the article and how ‘poorly written’ it was to just plane stupidity).  

        I like your site, I come here for knowledge sharing and to take an opportunity to post and most importantly defend my position.

        @6f401bc8d37938623f707f91646b0fd2:disqus , I feel you but be not afraid and stick your feet in the water.  If you come off as a troll, stay under the bridge, if not, post and defend your position.

        Example, I am an android fan.  I understand that AT&T is buying a talent set in android that was first to the market which they are dead last.  That’s an underlying benefit to AT&T.  I understand they are buying a wonderful blackberry infrastructure, including implementation of UMA, and wifi calling in general…COMPLETELY understood.  I like T mobile, because they are flexible, and will be onboard to the ship sinks…

      • jon

        I don’t know that fb is the way to go. Sure, it gets rid of most at&t trolls…but not all. It would also not stop former employees that hold a grudge for being “promoted to customer”. The one group it totally alienates, however, is current tmobile employees. Noone is going to post via fb for fear of their jobs. Sure there are bad apples, but those bad apples exist on both sides. And by changing the way this site handles blog posts would effectively silence one side of the debate. I would even go so far as to say the good employees that post here are the most informed and educated on these subjects because it hits them where it matters most (the wallet/purse). To silence them because of a few bad apples would be a shame. I can pretty much tell who in here is a real employee, who is a customer and who is an at&t employee…my advice is to leave it as is. I don’t think you (David) would be condoning the bad comments by not changing it. And to those complaining about the incivility, yeah it sucks. But remember “sticks and stones”. At the end of the day, these are just words on a blog. Hell, I’ve been called names on here and I don’t let it get to me. At the end of the day, I know more about what’s going on at tmobile than the average Joe because my family counts on the 70k my wife makes a year. I am not for this merger, but the reality is noone knows the ultimate outcome.
        What we should all understand is that all of the employees are under a ton of stress over this, customers from both carriers are passionate (and rabid in some cases) as well. And at&t employees are, no doubt, jumping in to stir the pot. I think it would do this site a great disservice to change things. You do an awesome job David, don’t let some bad apples ruin it for everyone.

        I agree, I wrote a comment on an earlier post about a lot of people being upset should T-Mobile not get the iPhone 5, after that i was called an iPhone troll? I am a proud Windows Phone user and i was just stating the obvious, cause according to my sources (tmonews) 1million users use an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile’s network. I was going to defend myself but decided not to, I like this site too much to get banned.

    Hopefully well get a clearer understanding of where this could be headed tomorrow. Att and the doj have to submit their settlement plans to the judge tomorrow. Does anyone know if all these other lawsuits that came after the dojs are linked (class action) or are they seperate?

  • MIKEEEEE

    ATT is going to have an uphill battle if all the people who dislike the merger get all their lobbyists to pressurize the politicians ATT has in their pockets.

    looks like ATT has swapped positions and is now on the defensive as they have to defend the merits of this crappy deal.

    i don’t think they can pull it off without huge divestitures and then t-mo would not be worth it.

  • Anonymous

    Jon – I just watched that entire youtube video….very interesting stuff there. Thanx for that. This deal is so complex…the one thing that jumped out to me was when the cwa pres made a statement about dt buying voicestream 10yrs ago….the us welcomed that investment. A huge international company entering the us wireless market. 10yrs later, doesn’t want them to leave (rightfully so for a number of reasons)…..that statement kinda sounded like the us is holding tmo usa hostage for the sake of maintaining 4 players…..”you can buy into the us but u can’t sell”…..sure dt can sell with no issue to a nontelco, but for much less money….that’s unfair, but I understand the anti-competitive aspects of the deal…..backhaul control, roaming etc….all that can be regulated to ensure smaller carriers don’t get taken advantage of

    • jon

      No problem…anytime. While the cwa pres does raise that issue with welcoming dt; it doesnt hold much water. Voicestream was already a national carrier before dt bought them. Dt didn’t create them from scratch. So his point doesn’t make sense. There were 4 national carriers prior to dt. The govt issue is replacing the competition so that there are 4 carriers after dt leaves. T-Mobile might have done a better job with marketing (getting rid of Jaime Lee-Curtis and having Catherine Zeta-Jones be the new face of the company). But dt didn’t create voicestream…so I think its reasonable for the govt and sprint to demand that there remain AT LEAST 4 major carriers.

      Noticed your catchphrase after your name “I love technology!”. If you really understood what you are espousing, you would realize that nothing spurs technology like competition. With T-mobile gone (as you would like), there would be less competition, and hence, less technology.

    First off, I’m not your homie. And you wrote a paragraph, but you didn’t say anything. You guys take this waaaayyy too serious. Let go ‘homie’

      Would you rather me say ‘Player’ or ‘My dude’ or other terms I’d rather not quote. You insulted David (IMHO). That’s cool though.

      I quote my sister quite often….She’s hilarious….homie.

    As I said in another article, there’s simply too much opposition (through the justice system, politicians, and public opinion) for this deal to go through. I see the deal dying.
