  •  It would have reduced (0+ / 0-)

    "the market" to only two carriers . . . AT&T and Verizon . . . which, since the FCC can't seem to regulate anything, might have been "bad" (or at least slightly worse than three scarcely regulated carriers).

    In fact the AT&T merger made sense . . . it would have eliminated redundent infrastructure (while accelerating upgrades) and provided better service (coverage and support) for users of both networks.  The continued existance of T-Mobile (as a separate entity) makes no sense at all.

    The only "winner" is Verizon . . . which does not have to face the costs of maintaining two separate networks (as the divided GSM world does) and gets more profits as a result.

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
