AT&T May File Merger Application At FCC By End Of April

April 6, 2011

Fresh off the announcement of its plan to buy T-Mobile, AT&T is jumping into a merger-approval process that could take up to a year or more.

A source familiar with the process told Tech Daily Dose that AT&T's Federal Communications Commission filing is expected later this month, possibly as early as April 21.

The company has said it anticipates the process will take about a year, while other observers, such as the research firm Strategy Analytics, predict it could take AT&T at least 18 months to clear all the regulatory hurdles.

Both the FCC and Department of Justice have to sign off on the deal. The process will include input from AT&T, its competitors, and the public. If regulators decide to move forward with the proposed merger, AT&T will likely be involved in lengthy discussions over potential conditions.
