Not so fast: Earlier Monday morning, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai indicated that he was going to encourage commissioners to vote to approve the merger between T-Mobile and Sprint. Only a few hours later, news broke that the US Department of Justice is looking to block the deal.

Bloomberg reports that a source close to the DoJ said the department is not convinced that the T-Mobile/Sprint merger would favor consumer interests. Instead, officials fear that it would hurt overall competition within the market.
