This panel will consider proper antitrust enforcement of mobile mergers as consolidation in the industry reaches new heights. What is the proper balance of weakened price competition against the potential for scale efficiencies and disruptive innovation, especially as carriers embark on next-generation wireless technology?  The discussion will draw lessons from several 4-to-3 mobile mergers that have been approved (with conditions) or denied in Europe and other developed countries.  We will explore the efficacy of spectrum divestitures and the sharing of wireless infrastructure to rectify competitive injury.
