Senator Lee Responds to Justice Department’s Decision to Block AT&T and T-Mobile Merger


Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) issued a response Thursday to the Justice Department’s decision to block the proposed merger of AT&T and T-Mobile, expressing his disappointment. The Senator’s statement follows:

“I am disappointed in the Justice Department’s decision to seek to block the proposed merger between AT&T and T-Mobile. The Senate Antitrust Subcommittee received significant evidence that the transaction could benefit consumers through enhanced service quality, expanded network capacity, increased data speeds, and continued innovation of data-rich handset devices and applications. I look forward to reviewing the Department’s analysis and trust that the merger review process will be directed towards maximization of consumer welfare.”
