Minnesota senator to regulators: “Do your job” regarding T-Mobile/AT&T merger

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) released a statement today calling on the FCC and the Department of Justice to take a “close look” at the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile merger:

“At a time when many Americans are using wireless phones as the sole means of telephone communication, it is vital that competition in the wireless market remain robust,” Klobuchar wrote in the letter. “That is why I urge you to take a close, hard look at this proposed acquisition and ensure that consumers are provided with adequate choice in the wireless market.”

Well said. I hope the FCC and DoJ do their due diligence and realize the downsides of having AT&T and Verizon control the vast majority of the mobile market.
