Today a group of Democratic Senators wrote to officials by the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Justice, seeking to emphasize the proposed collaboration between T-Mobile and Sprint. Eight eight colleagues in the letters directed to Mr. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) directed to FCC Chair Ajit Pai and chief executive DOJ Makan Delrahim.
"Our enforcement officers are the ultimate defense line that prevents the recycling of our telecommunications markets at the expense of American consumers," written by Senators. "We are asking you to act to prevent this dangerous merger from going on."
"We are seriously concerned that the merger of Sprint and T-Mobile will be especially eliminated by competition shown to benefit consumers and bring new carriers forward", which the senators introduced.
The proposed $ 26 billion compound between T-Mobile and Sprint was announced last April and there is currently a review of the FCC and the DOJ. If allowed, the large US wireless carrier's swimming pool would reduce to three out of four, including AT & T and Verizon.
The T-Mobile and Sprint also said that the merger would use them to use 5G wireless networks at a faster rate and that the consumer plan prices would lead to time. In his letter, Senators argued that the case was not the case.
"The best way to achieve a high quality, affordable 5G target nationwide through competitive markets," is the Senators' writing. "This merger takes us beyond the kind of competition we want to achieve this goal. It will give too much consolidation and it will base innovation."
The letter over a diana week already comes on Capitol Hill for the carriers. Legalists hear the Committees of Energy and Commerce and House Judges Wednesday and Thursday to analyze the proposed compound poles. It is hoped to give evidence to T-Mobile and Sprint executives at both hearings.
