Re: Why do you say that?
This has the potential to bring forth a cable monopoly. Verizon is giving up spectrum to Tmobile and also requires Verizon to sign LTE roaming agreement. But in return, they gain a great foothold in spectrum for bundling cable services through broadband rather than wired. Essentially eliminating DSL. It also allows forbidding other carriers to be sold through the cable providers. This does not percieve to be a great consumer interest in spite of what the FCC claims.
