In The News

Major telecoms are gearing up for a year of mergers, and AT&T laid out its case this week. It says that the merger with DirecTV would drive down the price of cable bundles and allow both companies to compete with the potential Comcast/Time Warner Cable behemoth. Though Comcast’s merger with Time Warner Cable has dominated headlines this year, it isn’t the only major telecommunications merger the Federal Communications Commission is facing. Last month AT&T announced a plan to buy DirecTV for $48.5 billion. Obviously, one of the nation’s largest telecom companies purchasing a major satellite TV company has regulators concerned, and the FCC and Department of Justice are currently taking a look at the deal. This week AT&T laid out why the merger would be good for the American consumer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t lingering questions. From The Christian Science Monitor
