AT&T’s proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA will, if approved, significantly degrade the competitive landscape in the wireless services market. When all is said and done it could effectively reduce the number of significant providers not by a quarter but by half. The combined market share, spectrum holdings, and network infrastructure of AT&T and T-Mobile will further marginalize Sprint Nextel and call into serious question Sprint’s independent survivability.
