This week, Softbank and Sprint reached a deal to hand over 70% of Sprint’s stock for a cool $20.1 billion. AT&T, as one would expect after Sprint’s critical response to their proposed acquisition of T-Mobile, is a litte weary of the whole situation, saying that the Japanese wireless carrier will control a lot more spectrum than any other company in the States.
But AT&T didn’t word a harsh response to the acquisition, instead it was more of a slight nudge to the FCC, reminding them that their merger with T-Mobile was turned down earlier this year. This deal still has to go through the proper regulatory procedures, so we have some time before it’s finished. It should be interesting to see if the other U.S. carriers speak up against it.
