While reading some off-season Cowboys news over at the Dallas Morning News, I stumbled across their tech blog where they have reported that RIM, Microsoft, Facebook and others are in support for AT&T’s T-Mobile acquisition. According to sources, a letter by the companies was delivered to the FCC in support of the proposed merge.

“Consumer demand for wireless broadband is dramatically increasing, and our wireless networks are struggling to keep pace with the demand,” the companies wrote in their letter. “AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile represents a near-term means of addressing the rising consumer demand.”

So far the mobile operator Sprint has been the only telecom to oppose the acquisition saying that the proposed T-Mobile takeover would harm the broadband economy, competition and consumers.
