Despite Sprint CEO Dan Hesse’s relentless objection to the FCC concerning AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile, AT&T continues to pursue a merger with T-Mobile, as it submits its proposal to the FCC. We know that this is likely to be the biggest and most crucial decision for the FCC to make. The FCC has initiated a new commentary portal for consumers to voice their opinions, apprehensions, support, or whatever they feel.
Consumers who would like to voice their views and sentiments about AT&T and T-Mobile’s merger can visit FCC’s website and look for the form with the proceeding number 11-65 entitled “In the Matter of applications of AT&T Inc. and Deutsche Telekom AG for consent to assign or Transfer Control of licenses and Authorizations.” All you need to do is fill out the form and follow the instructions. Don’t be hesitant, let your voice be heard if you are so inclined.
People all over the USA are already having so many idle talks about how this is going to affect them. Also, there are now many networks emerging to submit their objections to the FCC as well. But, Consumer Reports says that service should improve for both networks should the merger be allowed to occur. However, they also postulated that T-Mobile customers will probably experience a price hike. Furthermore, they also speculated that those who oppose it are those that that have the most to lose.
The FCC absolutely wants to hear from you. What are your views and thoughts on the merger? We’d love to hear from you as well.
