AT&T talks to sell T-Mobile assets go cold

According to Wall Street Journal, AT&T efforts to purchase T-Mobile might be a thing of the past. It is sure to make T-Mobile customers happy, and probably a lot of its employees, too.

With concerns about AT&T owning up more of the market, congress stepped-in to intervene several times over concerns for mobile consumers and if the merger would put employees out of jobs. Even the focus to merge the companies did not appear to put customers first on paper–not surprising in corporate world tactics–and it quickly reminded us of AT&T’s old game might continue.

When AT&T tossed $39 billion on the table, you can bet T-Mobile’s owner, Deutsche Telekom, had a smirk on his face. So too did congress, just not the smirk of enthusiasm–more like “oh you think so, huh?” AT&T could still try and fight the Justice Department in court, but for now the merger-deal seems to have gone cold and hopefully will remain frozen until the next ice-age.

If the merge were to happen many skeptical internet companies would find fewer counter-parties to negotiate with. T-Mobile is the country’s third largest network, combine that and you have Verizon, Sprint and AT&T as the main competitors for consumers to choose from. Somewhat surprising to see the deal hit a glacier, considering AT&T is the second largest donor to the U.S. political campaigns and top American corporate donor.
