Let the FCC know what you think of the AT&T/T-Mobile merger

Author: Riley Alexander, MD, MBA

As most of you are aware, AT&T has filed to purchase T-Mobile from its parent company, Deustche Telekom. This would, in essence, give AT&T a monopoly on the GSM mobile spectrum in the U.S. It is a merger that makes it hard to imagine of being to benefit to consumers in the long run.

If you're strongly inclined to voice your opinion on this matter to the FCC...well, you can. Through their Electronic Comment Filing System (found here), you can post your public filing/comment.

Note the link directs you to the appropriate filing, 11-65, in case you are wondering when you follow it.
