How is this even legal? It doesn't make much sense to be honest.

The current president want's to create jobs but uses the #DOJ to block a #merger that will create around 5000 new cell sites & 2-8000 new #USJobs? I'm thinking he is trying to just use these speeches to detour viewers from next weeks GOP debate when secretly killing the opportunities to create US Jobs.

More evidence is the fact they are now trying to regulate Apps, yea that will create jobs! To much regulation.

How does a merger create new jobs? Seems like there would be some efficiencies gained from one management structure, rather than two. If the cell sites are going to be constructed under one company - similar expansions would be made by each as individuals.

I'm not sure if I'd rather have regulation on the merger, or let it go and get raped by ATT now that there is only one main competitor to contend with. Either way, the government AND corporations are corrupt. Faith placed in any system, political or otherwise, will be abused.

think about it converting thousands of cell sites to one network takes people and part (because at&t will have to upgrade t-mobiles low capability network) that creates more jobs. but to address what you said Cell companies have a lot of regulation so a merger would create jobs with-in 6 moths vs. the same amount of jobs would take around 2.5 years. this was pointed out in the report the AT&T & T-Mobile gave the Gov to view when it proposed the merger.
