One of AT&T's main arguments for acquiring T-Mobile was that they needed their resources to expand their LTE network from 80 percent to 97 percent of the country.
However a letter that was briefly posted on the FCC's website by a law firm representing AT&T contains information that appears to undermine the argument according to an analysis by DSLReports.com
. DSLReports speculates that AT&T simply wants to reduce competition and doesn't need T-Mobile to expand their network but rather is using the expansion argument as an incentive to get approval.
What's your opinion? Does AT&T really need T-Mobile or are they simply buying them out to better position themselves against the competition?
