The FCC sets a goal of completing merger reviews in 180 days, and can pause the countdown clock enumerating those days as it seeks clarifications or more information.

The FCC said Tuesday it was pausing the review clock - now at Day 55 - because the two companies had submitted new information including a "substantially revised" network engineering model, a new business model and additional economic modeling. Moreover, the Applicants asserted that this is now the "engineering model on which they rely in support of this transaction". It appears to incorporate new logic, methodologies, facts, and assumptions, on a subject central to the Applications-the transaction's claimed network benefits. On top of that, it said, it also requires some extra time to go over a business model named "Build 9", which will provide the financial basis for the projected new network buildout. Both submissions were received on September 5. Build 9 therefore requires further review. Accordingly, the Commission and third parties will require additional time to review it.

T-Mobile said in a statement that it looked forward to working with the FCC in the review process. "The Price will bewitch whether to extend the time limit for reply comments after receiving the leisure of the Candidates' modeling submissions".
