AT&T Responds To Sprint Lawsuit
As expected AT&T has fired back with some less than flattering words toward Sprint on the news of Sprint attempting to legally block their T-Mobile takeover. An AT&T spokesman said “This simply demonstrates what we’ve said all along – Sprint is more interested in protecting itself than it is in promoting competition that benefits consumers. We of course will vigorously contest this matter in court as AT&T’s merger with T-Mobile USA will: help solve our nation’s spectrum exhaust situation and improve wireless service for millions; allow AT&T to expand 4G LTE mobile broadband to another 55 million Americans, or 97% of the population; and result in billions of additional investment and tens of thousands of jobs, at a time when our nation needs them most.”
AT&T of course promises to “vigorously fight” this lawsuit and reiterated its belief that this merger is ultimately going to prove beneficial for both the wireless industry and peace on earth.
