DOJ reportedly leaning against approving T-Mobile and Sprint's merger

27 days ago   |   By TmoNews

27 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

The FCC said that it would give its blessing to the T-Mobile/Sprint merger deal earlier today. However, the Department of Justice is not giving its blessing, yet.
T-Mobile revised its merger plan recently, which included selling off Boost Mobile after the merger was finalized. Which actually made a lot of sense, even without thinking about the antitrust issues. Seeing as there was already Metro by T-Mobile and Virgin Mobile included in this deal. But the Justice Department doesn't believe that's enough to for approval.
While T-Mobile and Sprint did have to meet some conditions from the FCC...

AT&T Defends Selling Your Location Data To The Highest Bidder

27 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

In a new letter sent to the FCC today, AT&T is defending its selling of your location data. This is despite the company actually stopping this practice earlier this year.
Last summer, all four major carriers were caught selling its users' location data, to just about anything. Motherboard went through a pretty thorough investigation to find this out. And found just how easy it would be to track someone, using the data that the carriers sell to third parties. After that investigation shed light on the issue, all four carriers stopped selling data. While some, like AT&T couldn't stop doing...

FCC Greenlights T-Mobile/Sprint Merger Despite Mounting Concerns

27 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

The United States Federal Communications Commission greenlit the proposed merger of T-Mobile and Sprint following a lengthy review started last year, Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement published Monday.
While the agency's probe of the deal has yet to be officially closed, the fact that its Chairman confirmed he intends to recommend the tie-in attempt for approval to his colleagues is essentially the same thing; with the Trump administration being in charge of the U.S. government, Mr. Pai represents a 3-to-2 majority at the telecom regulator's top committee, so what he says goes.
