T-Mobile USA deal for MetroPCS glides through FCC

The agency let the merger go through without a vote of its commissioners

By , IDG News Service |  Networking

The Communications Workers of America, which supported the AT&T deal, had called for a full FCC review of the T-Mobile-MetroPCS proposal. In a filing to the Commission on Monday, the union said the carriers hadn't given credible assurances that they wouldn't cut jobs after merging. Rosenworcel also raised job concerns in her statement but said the companies had pledged not to close domestic call centers or retail stores and said they would increase employment.
