The FCC’s monopoly-loving Chairman Ajit Pai is reviewing a *massive* merger between Sprint and T-Mobile that will lead to less choice, higher bills and crappier data plans if approved. We have to stop him from ramming this through.
There are only 13 days left in the public comment period make Pai reject the Sprint/T-Mobile merger. Take action now to stop this new telecom monopoly.
If approved, the merger will leave Internet users with only three national cell phone providers—and give Sprint/T-Mobile huge power over how millions of people use the Internet.
With less choice in the market and no strong privacy or net neutrality protections in place federally, it will be way easier for telecom giants to charge us new fees and block, throttle, and spy on our Internet use.
We know how much Ajit Pai loves telecom monopolies. Heck, he used to work for one! But we also know Sprint and T-Mobile merging is bad news.
This merger is going to hurt everyone—but it’s going to hurt low-income and marginalized communities the most.1 They’ve relied on providers like T-Mobile and Sprint for affordable Internet access for years. But with less competition, there’s going to be less incentive for providers to offer affordable packages and they could quickly disappear.
But it’s not too late. We can stop this. Sign our petition now and we’ll file a comment with the FCC on your behalf before the public comment period closes in two weeks.
