Big Win! AT&T Drops Its T-Mobile Takeover Bid

This is huge: AT&T just announced it’s finally abandoning its doomed merger with T-Mobile.

For nearly a year, we've been showing that this deal would have only meant higher prices, fewer choices and tens of thousands of lost American jobs. Free Press knew it; the Department of Justice agreed; so did the FCC.

Now even AT&T, its high-priced lobbyists and its fake grassroots front groups all must admit this deal is dead.

When AT&T first announced its bid to take over T-Mobile, pro-corporate cheerleaders told us this behemoth deal couldn’t be stopped. Many other groups and even members of Congress knew how bad the merger was but were afraid to say so. But we knew the truth and wouldn’t relent. 

The result is the best holiday gift we could have asked for: the end of this disastrous deal.

We couldn’t have stopped this merger without the support of hundreds of thousands of activists like you. You should be proud.

Enjoy this victory now, because our fight continues. Next year we’ll be working to stop the carriers from spying on your phone and blocking your right to speak online. We'll be exposing the phone companies for colluding with the cable guys to keep your prices high. And we’ll keep on pushing for real, lasting Net Neutrality protections for everyone — no matter how they get online.
