California PUC completes review of AT&T and Leap/Cricket merger

 The following blog may be attributed to Ken McNeely, AT&T California President.

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) completed their extensive review of the merger between AT&T and Leap/Cricket on November 8, 2013, effectuating the transfer of Leap/Cricket California wireless registration to AT&T.  We appreciate the CPUC’s swift and fair consideration of the issues.                                                                 

Leap/Cricket is headquartered in California, and the CPUC’s review sends an important signal to the Federal government that combining the two companies is in the public’s interest, delivers real benefits to consumers, and makes sense in an increasingly competitive marketplace.  

I thank CPUC Commissioner Catherine Sandoval for her leadership in reviewing the terms of the transaction, and look forward to bringing Leap/Cricket customers into the AT&T family.  We’re advancing California’s technology and infrastructure every day – helping people to connect in new and amazing ways – and we’re pleased to have taken this important step forward.

I really believe this will beneficial for consumers, as we all will need more advanced internet solutions in the near future
FCC should already be prepared for this type of deals, as this will just be one of many.
