U.S. Moves to Block AT&T Merger with T-Mobile - Yahoo! Finance The Justice Department filed a complaint on Wednesday to block AT&T's proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile, a deal that would create the largest carrier in the country and reshape the industry. I couldn't agree more with the Government on this. They should of nuked MaBell from orbit to be sure it was dead back in the da,. but seriously wireless prices in the US are high enough as it is. And who cares about them bringing back some call center jobs. They aren't all that and 5k isnt that many. Not worth letting them get away with this.
