T-Mobile, Sprint merger will move forward without more legal pushback

New York Attorney General Letitia James says New York will not move forward with an appeal of the T-Mobile/Sprint merger.

“I’d like to thank California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and the 12 additional attorneys general from around the nation for their partnership throughout this lawsuit,” James said. “After a thorough analysis, New York has decided not to move forward with an appeal in this case. Instead, we hope to work with all the parties to ensure that consumers get the best pricing and service possible, that networks are built out throughout our state, and that good-paying jobs are created here in New York.”

She says the process has yielded commitments from T-Mobile to create jobs in Rochester and engage in robust national diversity initiatives that will connect our communities with good jobs and technology.

“We are committed to continuing to fight for affordability and access for all of New York’s mobile customers,” James concluded.

The merger would allow T-Mobile to buy Sprint for $26.5 billion.
