AT&T Merger Opponents Lobby FCC To Block Deal

Opponents of AT&T's merger with T-Mobile are pushing the Federal Communications Commission to move to block the deal.

Representatives from Sprint, DISH, and Public Knowledge met with FCC officials in recent days to push that argument.

When the Justice Department filed suit against the merger in August, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said he also had concerns about the potential anti-competitive effects of the deal. The agency has signaled that it is unlikely to approve the merger while the Justice suit is ongoing.
