My colleague Stacey Higginbotham offers up this insightful post this morning that sizes up the FCC’s review of AT&T’s proposed takeover of T-Mobile USA. In a move that surely is bad news for AT&T executives, the FCC said Monday night that it would combine that review with its audit of AT&T’s purchase of spectrum from Qualcomm. That decision indicates that the FCC truly is concerned about the concentration of power that would occur if both purchases are approved. So maybe the AT&T/T-Mo tie-up isn’t the done deal some have thought it was.
