MetroPCS and Deutsche Telekom Confirm Merger Talks
Replying to: Should Not be Allowed by Versed
Re: Should Not be Allowed
This should not be allowed, fair is fair. And for more reasons then just one, foreign asset ownership as well as decreasing choice in carriers.
Aren't most of the factories and their workers that produce the goods you consume or use owned in China?
Chinese factories produce goods you use (your phone)
German company produces services you use (your service coverage)
Now, I do agree in the negative undertone of a carrier being eliminated. I love competition and choice. But the truth is, in capitalism, the goal is about eliminating competition and taking advantage of the situation. If Company A has $5 billion to invest in a network and Company B has $20 million to invest in a network, who do you think will have a more competitive network? AT&T and Verizon have become so massive and concentrated that the smaller carriers have lost much of their competitive edge in the dynamic marketplace, and the only way to compete is to try to match the cash flow, the customer base, the purchasing power, etc. of the larger companies.
