New York Attorney General to Size-Up AT&T / T-Mobile Deal
New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman today said he planned to conduct a thorough review of AT&T's proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile. In a statement emailed to Bloomberg, he said, "Affordable wireless service and technology, including smart phones and next generation handheld devices, are the bridge to the digital broadband future. We want to ensure all New Yorkers benefit from these important innovations that improve lives." Scheiderman believes the deal may have a greater impact on New York's northern cities (Rochester, Albany, Buffalo and Syracuse) more so than NYC, where citizens have more options available. Schneiderman is concerned that those who use T-Mobile as a low-cost provider may be aversely impacted by the acquisition.
