Until I read your article, I was unaware of the pending acquisition. However–on was just two days ago–that very same Monday, that I passed a T-Mobile location and wondered how much longer they would be around.

As for the bridge financing…reprehensible! One small hiccup and the tax payers will essentially be paying to subsidize the elimination of our strengths as a consumer.

I think consumers are going to get screwed over but ATT and their lobbying ways, which are number 2 in most money given to special interest, will make this happen.

They will do what most companies do in times of giant mergers, promise they will not raise rates, make all sorts of play toward the consumer and basically say, “oh we won’t hurt you we will be there for you.” Then turn around and not do a thing they just promised.

I wish our government had a back bone and DC politicians weren’t so paid off because this would be canned in a heart beat. AT&T is truly the evil empire and their death star is getting put back together piece by piece, administration by administration continues to let these giant companies reform and do nothing but damage.
