US files to block AT&T purchase of T-Mobile
Washington, August 31, 2011
The Obama administration on Wednesday filed to block AT&T's proposed acquisition of wireless rival T-Mobile USA because of anticompetitive concerns, two sources familiar with the matter said.
A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment as did a spokesman for AT&T.
Blocking the combination on antitrust grounds would be a big blow to the telecommunication giant's expansion plans.-Reuters
