An unbelievable August for the mobile industry was capped this morning with news that the U.S. Department of Justice has filed an anti-trust suit to block AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile USA. AT&T quickly responded by saying it will fight the suit tooth and nail, and T-Mobile noted that the deal would bring 5,000 call center jobs back to the U.S. There are a lot of dollars at stake and plenty of politics at play, so it’s too early to stick a fork in the acquisition. And with a massive $6 billion break-up fee looming, you can be sure that AT&T is going to fight with everything it has.
