Wisconsin Attorney General joins lawsuit to halt proposed merger of Sprint and T-Mobile

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul joined eight states and the District of Columbia in filing a multi-state lawsuit to halt the proposed merger of telecom giants T-Mobile and Sprint.

The complaint, filed in New York federal court in coordination with California, Colorado, Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., alleges that the merger of two of the four national mobile network operators would deprive consumers of the benefits of competition and drive up prices for cellphone services.

“Maintaining strong competition helps keep prices low,” said Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul. “If this proposed merger happens, many Wisconsinites will see increased prices for their cell-phone plans.”

T-Mobile US Inc. and Sprint Corp. are the third and fourth largest mobile wireless networks in the U.S., respectively. Verizon Wireless and AT&T — the two largest wireless networks — round out the market.
