Today U.S. Representative Heath Shuler (D-NC), along with 14 Democratic co-signers, sent a letter to President Obama urging him to swiftly resolve concerns with the proposed transaction between AT&T and T-Mobile USA and to settle and approve the merger, which will create jobs and expand high-speed Internet access to individuals and businesses across the country.
A recent study found that the AT&T/T-Mobile USA Merger would almost immediately create approximately 55,000 to 96,000 new jobs. Another study estimates that the long-term next generation wireless broadband investment that will result from this merger will create hundreds of thousands of additional jobs by 2016. Additionally, this merger will spur billions of dollars in new private investment to deploy high-speed wireless Internet to 97% of the U.S. population.
