That's great news! I was outraged when heard about the deal in the beginning. But it looks like Justice Department is doing its job, at last. If antitrust enforcement was really good in this country, Ma Bell wouldn't even think about it. But enforcement was lax, so they decided to try. No way.
It's especially good news for T-Mobile (DTEGF.PK) customers. AT&T (T) is consistently worst cell company in the country. I've been there, couldn't wait for 2-year contract to end.
T-Mobile wants to find a buyer? Maybe Vodaphone (VOD)?
Full disclosure: no positions
