T-Mobile joins the Rural Cellular Association

FCC gives small carriers hope with look at AT&T

The Rural Cellular Association and small carriers may have won a small victory in its request to have the FCC take a look at the proposed AT&T buy of MediaFLO and T-Mobile spectrum.

The carriers want the industry watchdog to consider the two acquisitions as a whole rather than separately, as they would have a large effect on the competitive market.

FCC pressed by carriers for data roaming

An informal coalition of smaller US carriers has pushed for the FCC to require data roaming agreements with AT&T and Verizon. Sprint, T-Mobile, Cricket, and carriers in the Rural Cellular Association have argued that they need a guarantee their subscribers can run data on these networks, not just voice, when they can't be on their native networks. They asked the FCC to "promptly move forward" and were hoping to get it on the FCC's meeting agendas as soon as April, Politico said.
