California to Review AT&T / T-Mobile Deal

The California Public Utilities Commission has voted to investigate AT&T's proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA. If allowed to proceed, the combined AT&T/T-Mobile entity would control 47% of California's wireless market. The PUC is concerned that the merger would give too much market power to one company. The state of California cannot, by itself, block the acquisition, but it can submit comments to the Federal Communications Commission, which is already performing its own review of the proposal. The California Public Utilities Commission believes it will have some weight with the FCC given the population of California. It has tentatively scheduled October 6 for a vote on the matter. The U.S. Justice Department is also performing a review of the acquisition, as are several other states.
