U.S. Justice Dept gives its blessing to MetroPCS, T-Mobile deal

WASHINGTON, March 12 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department said on Tuesday it closed its investigation into the proposed merger between MetroPCS Communications Inc and Deutsche Telekom AG's T-Mobile USA wireless unit, concluding that the deal would be unlikely to harm consumers.

The deal might have a positive impact on competition if it improved T-Mobile's scale and spectrum position, the department's Antitrust Division said in a statement.
