U.S. Senate To Hold Hearing On AT&T's Acquisition of T-Mobile

AT&T has a bit of a mountain to climb before their acquisition of T-Mobile can go through. Sprint CEO Dan Hesse doesn’t want it to happen. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is dubious of the deal. Even an FCC Commissioner has issues with the whole thing.

AT&T is still pretty confident that they’ll have no trouble pushin’ the deal through — but the real battle begins May 11th. According to Bloomberg, that’s when they’ll face their first (presumably of many) challenges: a hearing with the Senates Judiciary antitrust committee.

Time to get your bets in, folks: will the deal go through? What will AT&T have to give up to get those oh-so-important stamps of approval?
