The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a request with the Federal Communications Commission asking the agency to "defer action" with respect to T-Mobile USA's proposed merger with MetroPCS. The Justice Department, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security, are "reviewing this matter for any national security, law enforcement, and public safety issues." These agencies have yet to complete their reviews and are asking that the FCC refrain from taking any action (whether approving or disapproving) the deal before the agencies have a chance to submit their own results. The FCC began is 180-day review of the deal in October and is officially on day 32 of its review. The FCC has yet to indicate if it will halt the timeclock for the review, or simply wait until the other agencies complete their own reviews before it takes any action.
