AT&T slams FCC report on T-Mobile merger
AT&T slams FCC report on T-Mobile merger, sees bias and cherry-picking
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' AT&T says the Federal Communications Commission compiled an unfair and biased report on what would happen if AT&T were allowed to buy T-Mobile USA.

AT&T agreed in March to buy T-Mobile USA for $39 billion, but the deal has encountered opposition, first from the Justice Department and then from the FCC. Analysts now give it only a slim chance of going through.

The FCC took the unusual step of releasing its analysis of the merger on Tuesday.

In its response Thursday, AT&T Inc. says the report gives the impression "that it is an advocacy piece, and not a considered analysis." The report says the merger would threaten fragile competition, yet it cites existing competition as a strong motivator for AT&T, the company says.
