AT&T Withdraws its T-Mobile Bid; Competitive Concerns Remain

Washington, DC– Today, AT&T announced it is withdrawing its application to acquire T-Mobile.  CCA (Competitive Carriers Association) is pleased with the announcement, but continues to encourage policymakers to ensure a competitive marketplace.

In a statement, CCA President& CEO Steven K. Berry said, “I am pleased that AT&T dropped its bid to acquire T-Mobile, but competitive concerns still remain.  Competitive carriers still face significant challenges including data roaming, interoperability, access to devices and access to usable spectrum.  While today’s announcement was a step in the right direction, there is still work to be done.  The FCC must ensure a wireless ecosystem that is fueled by competitive policies.”
