Former FCC chairman Reed Hundt was interviewed regarding the Department of Justice's choice on blocking the AT&T merger. The former officer was quoted saying “AT&T is certain to lose.” “They can litigate the case to death,” he said saying the whole concept brings up too much anti-trust issues. “It’s an extremely easy case. The Department of Justice will win the case in court. No question about it.”
AT&T, who was once very sure the deal will go through, is now offering to sell off 25% of T-Mobile, in an attempt to sway the people reviewing the case.
