NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today announced that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is joining the multi state lawsuit blocking the anti-competitive mega merger of telecommunications giants T-Mobile and Sprint. The keystone state is now the 18th state participating in the lawsuit, which James says adds to their momentum.
James goes on to say that the merger between the nation’s 3rd and 4th largest wireless carriers would be bad for consumers and bad for innovation. As the fifth largest state in the country, Pennsylvania joins California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and others in the suit.
Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Josh Shapiro says all residents of his state deserve access to reliable and affordable wireless access, and he says by preventing this mega merger, he can protect that access.
