The FCC today held a vote on — and gave its blessing to — the proposed merger of T-Mobile and Sprint. The five commissioners voted as expected and/or promised. The vote was along party lines, with the three Republican commissioners voting to approve, and the two Democratic commissioners voting against. The deal has also been approved by the Department of Justice. However the deal could still be stopped by a bipartisan coalition of 17 state Attorneys General that are suing to block the deal. Pennsylvania was the most recent state to join the lawsuit, one month ago.

Those Who Are Suing
