RTG Statement on Senator Klobuchar’s Letter Pressing AT&T, T-Mobile on Consumer Issues

Statement of RTG’s General Counsel, Carri Bennet – “We applaud Senator Klobuchar for listening to the concerns of her constituents who are worried that the potential merger of AT&T and T-Mobile could increase prices, limit choice, decrease quality and stifle innovation. AT&T’s proposed takeover of T-Mobile creates a clear duopoly and in many rural markets a monopoly that would dramatically reduce competition in the wireless industry, harming other businesses and cutting American jobs and reducing investment. Senator Klobuchar’s dedication to ensuring that both AT&T and T-Mobile adhere to pro-consumer practices that protect urban and rural interests are to be commended.”
