SoftBank's intention of purchasing a 70% stake in Sprint is one of the month's bigger news stories (at least so far), so it's no wonder that today we're seeing other carriers coming out and stating some issues they have with the proposed acquisition.

Specifically, AT&T seems concerned over the fact that SoftBank acquiring Sprint means that SoftBank will also take control of Clearwire, giving it a large amount of wireless spectrum.
SoftBank's desire to purchase a majority stake in Sprint last week, but today, the two companies confirmed the deal. SoftBank will pay out $20.1 billion to take control of a 70% share in Sprint, with $12.1 billion of that going to current Sprint shareholders as consideration for the buyout. The rest of the money - all $8 billion of it - will be given to Sprint as new capital.
