AT&T And T-Mobile USA Put Their Proposed Merger Talks On Hold, For Now
Here's a quote from AT&T about the move: "AT&T is committed to working with Deutsche Telekom to find a solution that is in the best interests of our respective customers, shareholders and employees. We are actively considering whether and how to revise our current transaction to achieve the necessary regulatory approvals so that we can deliver the capacity enhancements and improved customer service that can only be derived from combining our two companies' wireless assets.”
In other words, don't expect any groundbreaking news about this until after CES 2012; once that's over, though, you may hear some Earth-rocking news right around Mobile World Congress. It'll be fitting, no?
