So, we’ve made some news this weekend.  In case you missed it, we announced on Sunday we have agreed to acquire T-Mobile USA from German-owned Deutsche Telekom.

The deal will undergo a thorough review by the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission.  We understand that Congress, the DOJ, the FCC, as well as wireless consumers will have questions about the transaction.  We look forward to answering and addressing those questions.

We are confident that the facts will demonstrate that the deal is in the public interest (FCC focus) and that competition (DOJ focus) will continue to flourish. For example, a large majority of Americans today can choose from at least five wireless providers offering nationwide service.  Also, the transaction will allow us to expand the next generation of mobile broadband to 95% of the U.S. population – up from 80% as previously planned – covering an additional 46.5 million Americans, a key objective of the Administration.
