Merger-happy FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is recommending approval of the T-Mobile/Sprint deal, which would send mobile prices through the roof even for folks who aren’t customers of these two companies.
But there’s still hope: The Justice Department hasn’t yet weighed in. Call the DoJ today at 202-804-1389 and tell regulators to reject the T-Mobile/Sprint merger.
When the office picks up, here’s what you can say:I’m calling to ask you to block the T-Mobile/Sprint merger. Our antitrust laws should protect us from mergers like this that would raise prices and crush competition.Thanks!
Today Trump’s FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, signaled his decision to recommend approval of the disastrous T-Mobile/Sprint merger based on a series of empty promises that will do nothing to address how awful this merger is.
If this deal goes through, prices will soar for all mobile customers — as T-Mobile’s own economists admitted.
We still have a chance to stop this thing: The Department of Justice hasn’t approved the deal.
Call Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim at 202-804-1389 and urge the Justice Department to reject this merger.
When the office picks up, here’s what you can say:I’m calling to ask you to block the T-Mobile/Sprint merger. Our antitrust laws should protect us from mergers like this that would raise prices and crush competition.
If the government won’t block this classic massive horizontal merger, then our antitrust laws are meaningless.
This merger would leave the United States with only three nationwide wireless providers — crushing competition, raising prices and eliminating as many as 30,000 jobs across the country.
And the deal would disproportionately harm low-income people and communities of color, who rely on competition between T-Mobile and Sprint (and their prepaid services Boost, Metro and Virgin) to keep access affordable.
This deal cannot happen: Call the Justice Department today at 202-804-1389 and tell them to do their job and block the T-Mobile/Sprint merger.
Thanks for all you do—
