United States v. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Deutsche Telekom is a lawsuit brought by the US Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice which seeks to block the merger of AT&T and T-Mobile USA. If this merger happens, AT&T will acquire a customer base of approximately 132 million users, making it the largest wireless carrier in the

United States

. Consumer groups argue that the merger would raise prices and stifle innovation by consolidating so much of the wireless industry in one firm. But according to AT&T, the merger would in fact increase network quality and lead to larger savings for the company which would translate into better bargains for the consumers.
