Leap Wireless today voiced its opposition to the proposed AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile. "A competitive marketplace is critical to wireless innovation -- and small and mid-sized carriers such as Cricket are driving that innovation," said Doug Hutcheson, President and CEO of Leap and Cricket. "The proposed acquisition would eliminate T-Mobile as an important nationwide competitor in the industry. It also raises problems of spectrum concentration and impaired access to spectrum by competitive carriers; undercuts access to wholesale voice and data roaming services; and threatens to foster reduced device availability and reduced interoperability of wireless networks and devices, among many other issues. Those results are not in the public interest." Sprint has been highly vocal in its opposition to the deal, which is currently undergoing close scrutiny by the Federal Communications Commission and Department of Justice.
