Statement of FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski

on Proposed AT&T/T-Mobile Transaction
“Competition is the engine of our free market economy and a cornerstone of the FCC’s
mandate. Our review of this merger has had a clear focus: fostering a competitive market that
drives innovation, promotes investment, encourages job creation, and protects consumers. These
goals will remain the focus if any future merger application is filed.”
