AT&T extends expected closing date to purchase T-Mobile

DOJ has been investigating proposed sale

Communications behemoth AT&T announced late last week that it would extend the date it expects to close its purchase of telecom company T-Mobile. AT&T originally expected to close the sale at the end of the first quarter of next year.

However, due to the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) ongoing investigation into the merger, AT&T now expects to close by the end of the first half of 2012.
