FCC Asks AT&T to Clarify How T-Mobile Deal Will Add Jobs
The Federal Communications Commission today formally requested AT&T to supply it with yet more information regarding its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile.

The truth of the matter
discrediting AT&T's contract and external job creation argument
One, AT&T claims that it will contract out thousands of jobs in both consolidating the T-Mobile GSM 1900 network into the AT&T GSM 850/1900 network and clearing the T-Mobile W-CDMA 2100+1700 network, then redeploying LTE 2100+1700 in the former T-Mobile AWS 2100+1700 MHz spectrum.
Two, AT&T claims that rural 4G deployment will be an economic multiplier that will engender job growth in rural America.
