Sprint fights the AT&T merger at the state level

Looks like Sprint is pretty serious about fighting the AT&T/T-Mobile merger by going directly to the state regulators. West Virginia’s, to be exact:

AT&T Inc.’s plan to acquire rival T-Mobile USA Inc. drew fire from Sprint Nextel Corp. at West Virginia’s utilities regulator.

Sprint cited its concerns that the merger would hurt consumers in seeking the state’s permission to intervene there.

As a FYI, here’s a list of the state public utility regulators, so they can put the pressure on AT&T as well. 🙂
