Second Hearing in Works for AT&T, T-Mobile Deal

The House Judiciary Committee is planning to hold a hearing on the AT&T/T-Mobile transaction in late May, industry and government sources told Tech Daily Dose. Tentative dates for the session before the Subcommittee on Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet, chaired by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., are May 25 or 26.

The Senate Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee, headed by Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., will be the first congressional panel to review the transaction when it convenes a May 11 hearing featuring two marquee witnesses: AT&T President and CEO Randall L. Stephenson and T-Mobile USA President and CEO Philipp Humm.

AT&T's proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile is also expected to be the focus of hearings before the Senate and House Commerce Committees. The Justice Department and Federal Communications Commission recently commenced their regulatory reviews of the deal.
