AT&T pleads spectrum poverty, despite vast holdings

Brad Reed, Network World | May 11, 2011

Stephenson said that even though T-Mobile would no longer be in the wireless mix, AT&T would still face strong competition not only from Verizon but also smaller players such as Leap and MetroPCS. Sohn scoffed at this, however, and said the idea that MetroPCS could effectively compete with AT&T was like saying mom-and-pop stores could effectively compete with Walmart.

AT&T first announced its proposed $39 billion merger with T-Mobile in March, setting off a storm of criticism from both consumer groups and smaller carriers.
