Report: Justice Department Extending Review of ATT-T-Mobile Deal

The Justice Department appears ready to take its time reviewing AT&T’s planned $39 billion takeover of T-Mobile USA. According to Bloomberg, the DOJ has requested more information from the companies, a move that signals a longer review period.
