The 4Competition Coalition, an alliance of companies and interest groups opposed to the Sprint/T-Mobile merger, announced Monday that five new organizations have joined its ranks. Two rural wireless companies, Kansas-based United Wireless Communications and Pennsylvania-based Indigo, announced their opposition to the merger. Additionally, the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association, an industry groups whose members provide wireless internet to more than 4 million Americans, also announced it was opposed. Two other organizations, the American Antitrust Institute and Demand Progress Education Fund also joined the 4Competition Coalition. The Coalition argues that the Sprint/T-Mobile merger would lead to “higher prices, fewer choices, and reduced quality of service for Americans across the country.” The other Coalition members are AFL-CIO, Common Cause, C Spire, CWA-Union, DISH Network, Fight for the Future, The Greenlining Institute, New America’s Open Technology Institute, NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association, Open Markets Institute, Public Knowledge, the Rural Wireless Association, and Writers Guild of America West.
