U.S. Senator Herb Kohl, chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, today weighed in against the acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T citing substantial harm to competition and consumers. In a letter to the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission, Chairman Kohl said, "An acquisition which would decrease the number of national competitors from four to three in an already highly concentrated market, and one that eliminates the low price competitor from this market, is in my view highly dangerous to competition and consumers."
