Commentary: CPUC Should Back T-Mobile / Sprint Merger

"California is one of the few states that hasn't yet completed its review of the transaction. In the wake of the U.S. Department of Justice approval, it’s time for the CPUC to complete its review process and approve the merger so Californians can benefit from greater access to broadband."

For California to remain at the forefront of economic prosperity and innovation, all of us — rural and urban, coastal and inland, regardless of age or wealth — need reliable access to broadband. Leadership starts with broadening access, and this is at the core of our mission at the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) and a passion for triple-bottom-line leadership organizations like Valley Vision.
