Apparently Sprint is more than a little worried over the possibility of AT&T acquiring T-Mobile as Sprint has officially offered a press release that "urges the United States government to block" the acquisition.
If AT&T takes over T-Mobile, that would mean that AT&T would become the largest mobile carrier in North America with an approximately 130 million customers. This believes that this would "harm consumers", reversing "nearly three decades of actions by the US government and the courts that modernized and opened US communications markets to competition.
Sprint has every notion to fight AT&T when it comes to acquiring T-Mobile as Sprint believes they will do everything they can to do what is right for their customers and their country, to undo the progress of the past 25 years and create a new Ma Bell duopoly.
