Submission + - Antitrust probe for Wireless provider texting (eweek.com)

DJRumpy writes: The chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights urges the Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission to examine whether dominant wireless carriers such as AT&T and Verizon are stifling competition with practices that include exclusive arrangements between carriers and cell phone makers, possible text messaging price fixing, and questionable roaming arrangements.

Apparently the new Antitrust chief is doing just that, but hitting resistance from within the administration.
