AT&T Files T-Mobile Acquisition Papers with the FCC
this is a sham
Atlas Shrugged in real life
Anti dog-eat-dog legislation should be passed! How dare they merge!!!!
Stop misappropriating the work of Ayn Rand.
A company using public property as the lifeblood of its business and buying out ...
My guess is ATT's spin out of this is it will create jobs as opposed to ONLY ATT's workforce. Otherwise, there will definitely be a loss.
Why I think this will not work:
1) ATT will not be extendin...
i think a lot of people from T-mobile usa will lose their jobs as AT&T have a lot of union jobs.
Here's an idea. ATT just fix you're crap!
On the other hand T-Mobile recently has made leaps & bounds of improvements to their network, as with them I pretty much get full bars all the time and speedy data.
And I'm not even in NY, which I'm sure has something to do with why ATT doesn't improve anything here, not enough complainers.
Now I like TMO, like UMA, like their phone selection, like their prices. But I'm currently with ATT. So, wait it out and hope with the buyout things will improve, switch to TMO for possibly their last few years in bussiness? Then jump ship when ATT messes things up, prices go up, takes em' even longer to roll out LTE?
AD discussions continues below...
No fear for Big Red
I see more people switching to Verizon because of this than staying with TMO and moving to ATT.
Either that or they'll jump on TMO now to get their price plan grandfathered. An...
WHY WORRY SO MUCH BOUT IT!
as far as pricing, why complain. if you already have your plan with tmo then u will be able to keep plan and also still change plan to get addictional minutes or less minutes with the same tmo pricing. i still have my alltel plan and vzw cannot make me change it. i can change my plan at any time to increase and decrease minutes and add a adictional line to my acct. i don't see why complain about pricing because its not like your goign to change carriers every year or so. nroaml people keep their number and carrier unless there is a coverage issue or an...
Eliminating a competitor increases competition every time, LOL!
Typo in filing
Once the merger goes through, USA will have the world's most expensive data!
Imaging that, you have to pay $10 for ONE AND SINGLE BYTE!
OHH! I GET IT! IT WILL CREATE MORE JOBS!!!!
It doesn't matter
AT&T will get their way. It's easier to buy out someone with towers than to build their own. I've seen it happen in my home town. I loved Edge wireless and at&t bought them out and screwed everyone. People lost jobs, customers were lied to and angry. That was a good time for me to be working with Alltel. Then the same thing happened to me, lost my job and now it's happening again.
Cell phones are not a 'right' mind you. It doesn't matter what we think. Those with money make decisions that effect us.
Its really sad this is happening. Im a big fan of T-Mobile. I used to work for AT&T and I know their peoblems as a company. If this merger goes through we can say goodbye...
Goodbye to free tether.
Goodbye to no dropped calls.
The merger will also...
This is a joke. AT&T knows what it is doing, and so does everyone else in the wireless industry. Let's just hope the FCC sees that too.
There is no other way to produce a mule. All mules are sterile, meaning they cannot reproduce.
Hopefully this merger will produce a better mule.
So last year...
