Blumenthal Statement on Proposed T-Mobile/Sprint Merger

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement today in response to the proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint:

“Consumers in the wireless market have benefited greatly from fierce competition over the last few years. Variety in the wireless market and the presence of strong competitors like T-Mobile have forced carriers to offer better prices and services. As the next generation of technologies arise, consumers and our economy need more competition, not less. Shrinking the number of major carriers from four to three certainly rings alarm bells. I will scrutinize this merger closely to ensure that consumers and workers - and not just shareholders - benefit from what would be a significant consolidation in the wireless market.”
