The article analyzes the purchase of Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile USA division by AT&T for 39 billion U.S. dollars. Philip Humm, president and chief executive officer of T-Mobile USA, finds the transaction unexpected and unsettling. Sprint criticized the deal, claiming that the companies will be taking control of the U.S. wireless post-paid market, as well as the availability and price of key inputs like backhaul. Wayne Watts of AT&T defended the deal, saying that the government will assess this on a local, market-by-market basis.
