Critics claim that customers who depend on prepaid services will take
the biggest hit if the merger goes through

T-Mobile's proposed merger with Sprint has come under scrutiny at New
York's Attorney General's (AG) office. According to the New York Post,
at issue are concerns that the two companies could jack up prices on
less expensive prepaid services if their packages are combined.

This isn't the first red flag that's been waved. It was only last
month that the FCC pressed the pause button on the merger after the
two mobile giants determined that the engineering model was more
complex than thought and the companies needed more time to review it
as well as respond to the "various economic analyses"' in the FCC's
Petitions to Deny.
