DOJ Investigating AT&T, Verizon Over Possible Collusion


The Justice Department is investigating whether AT&T and Verizon colluded with a wireless standards organization to make it harder for consumers to switch phone carriers, according to The New York Times.

The Times is reporting that the agency’s antitrust division has contacted the groups about whether the wireless carriers tried to deter a new technology known as eSIM, which would allow consumers to switch providers without using a SIM card.


AT&T is also facing an antitrust lawsuit from the Justice Department over its $85 billion merger with Time Warner.
