AT&T withdraws T-Mobile deal from FCC consideration

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

It looks like AT&T is withdrawing the T-Mobile deal from FCC consideration. Turns out that the FCC wanted to hold an administrative hearing on the whole thing, which definitely was not what AT&T wanted to have happen. A failure at the hearing would make the DoJ case against the deal that much harder to defend, and vice versa.

A good strategic move for AT&T, sure. But they may just be fighting the inevitable.
