Sprint Files Ex Parte Letter with FCC Over AT&T/T-Mobile
Sprint filed an ex parte letter with the Federal Communications Commission on September 30 asking the FCC "to act promptly to designate AT&T’s proposed takeover of T-Mobile for a hearing before an administrative law judge." The FCC, which is still reviewing AT&T's proposed acquisition of T-Mobile, has yet to make any sort of final decision regarding the matter. If the FCC is to eventually object to the deal, scheduling a hearing before an administrative judge would be the next step for it to take. With the ex parte letter, Sprint is, in effect, asking the FCC to hurry up and deny approval of the merger. Sprint points out that other organizations, such as Public Knowledge, and the Dish Network, have filed similar ex parte letters. This action is separate from Sprint's lawsuit against AT&T, the Department of Justice's lawsuit against AT&T, and the lawsuits filed by seven other U.S. states and Puerto Rico. AT&T will face the Justice Department in federal court on February 13. The FCC has not indicated when it will be ready to make its own decision regarding the acquisition.

Sprint starting to get on my nerves
Is Sprint starting to irritate anyone else in regards to this, or is it just me?
Not me. I commend Sprint for this move. Yes, I am a Sprint supporter. However, I more support a large entity to help voice my opinion of blocking the merge.
