T-Mobile reacts to latest FCC filings by opponents of the merger

T-Mobile reacts to latest FCC filings by opponents of the merger
It hasn't been a secret that Sprint is by far the biggest opponent of the proposed AT&T-T-Mobile merger. CEO Dan Hesse has basically done all he can to oppose and present arguments as to why the deal shouldn't get done, including an explanation of how AT&T could actually increase its network capacity without acquiring T-Mobile, the nation's fourth-largest carrier.

However, it seems T-Mobile's Tom Sugrue, the company's Vice President of Government Affairs, has decided to join the debate by issuing a comment on recent FCC filings. According to the official, opponents of the merger have thus far “failed to offer any credible arguments”, and have demonstrated a “head-in-the-sand insistence that no spectrum crisis exists”.

Obviously, Mr. Surgue believes that the sooner the deal gets approved and signed, the better. However, could Dan Hesse be hiding one last trick up his sleeve to change the course of things? If he has one, it better be good, we say.
