AT&T's Proposed Acquisition of T-Mobile (I.11-06-009)

The CPUC is looking into AT&T's proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA, Inc. in order to investigate, gather, and analyze information relevant to the proposed merger's effects on the California economy and California consumers.

The CPUC will analyze whether to apply any conditions that would mitigate any California-specific effects of the merger, and whether the CPUC will need to take any further action. In addition, the information the CPUC gathers will create a record that the CPUC can relay to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in conjunction with the FCC's review of the proposed merger.

In the course of the review, the CPUC will hold public workshops and Public Participation Hearings.

The CPUC has set an aggressive timeline for this proceeding, with a target decision date in early October.

The CPUC has set an aggressive timeline for this proceeding, with a target decision date in early October. However, as a result of the Aug. 31, 2011, U.S. Department of Justice complaint in Federal District Court seeking to block the proposed acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T Wireless, the Administrative Law Judge for this proceeding suspended the due dates for the comments and reply comments on the AT&T economic model that were previously scheduled for September 1, 2011, and September 9, 2011, respectively.  We are working to assess the effect of the DOJ development on our proceeding, and further information on the schedule for this proceeding will be forthcoming.
