Stop the Mobile Mega-Merger

 

T-Mobile and Sprint’s planned merger is bad news for communities of color—but this month California has a chance to fight back.  

The two mobile giants are planning to join forces to remain competitive with AT&T and Verizon—who together control about two thirds of the current market. But this spells doom for the customers of color who T-Mobile and Sprint are currently serving.

Sign this petition to let the California Public Utilities Commission know where you stand! The Commission is currently assessing the impact of the proposed merger and should know the facts. 

Fifty-six percent of T-Mobile’s customers are people of color, as are close to half of Sprint’s, and they are disproportionately living on low incomes. The proposed merger will reduce competition for these customers and exacerbate the digital divide—leaving our communities even more disconnected than they already are.

Rising prices may also mean some will have to choose between feeding their families and remaining connected in order to access health care, education, and other resources needed to survive.

T-Mobile and Sprint don’t have us covered. Let's make our voices heard to California regulators.

Sign the petition and let California regulators know you don't support the T-Mobile/Sprint merger
