An anonymous reader writes Last week, the Department of Justice filed an antitrust complaint to stop the merger between AT and T and T-Mobile USA. Now AT and T responded, arguing that the merger would benefit consumers by increasing competition and free up the spectrum. This means increased production, a better service, fewer dropped calls and reduced prices for consumers without the merger, they say.

A hearing is scheduled for September 21.
