Clearwire Chief Says AT&T Buyout of T-Mobile is a ‘Huge Challenge to Competition’

Clearwire’s new chief John Stanton in an interview Thursday with the Wall Street Journal voiced his objection to the proposed AT&T buyout of T-Mobile. He cast the company’s potential 79 percent control of subscription customers in the US as a “huge challenge to competition.” Device exclusivity was already a problem with AT&T, such as its recently ended iPhone exclusive, and could only get worse if the carrier had that much more clout, the CEO told the WSJ.

Clearwire is the operator of the largest Wimax network in the US. Besides selling access to the network under its Clear brand, access the Wimax network is also sold by Sprint, Comcast and Warner Cable.
