Today Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman released the following statement on the announced merger between T-Mobile and MetroPCS:
"Consumers benefit from strong, vibrant competition in the wireless marketplace. Competition on a national scale can bring innovation, better service, and lower prices to consumers everywhere. The proposed merger between T-Mobile and MetroPCS may have the potential to enhance nationwide wireless competition and benefit consumers throughout the United States. I urge the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission to review the merits of this proposed transaction rigorously but swiftly."
