Any thing that weakens the market position of ATT is better for the consumer in the long run. Ever notice how when you add every thing Up the wireless plans are pretty much the same price?

Why just AT&T? Verizon is a good amount bigger then AT&T is. you hurt at&t to much and verizon is going to kill everyone. We WANT at&t and verizon to be big. this means a better coverage and service because they have more resources to build a better network then multiple little guys. SOME monopolies are a GOOD thing, (water, gas, electricity) Maybe cell service..?? I'm just saying there are benifits to a monopoly. Imagine having one carrier worldwide.??? All the phones could be built to just work on one technology instead of our mess of types we have now. I could use my phone worldwide without any problems, roaming rates. It makes way more sense.

The problem with a monopoly is power. one group of guys controls a lot otherwise a monopoly isn't that bad of an idea?

We just want Options in the service as far as plans and phones. Thats my option (even though i'm right and your an idiot for not agreeing ;) nah but thats my take anyways. ) Just think about the possibilities. The word monopoly gets a bad rep.

? It's like this in any market? If I have two cars that are very similar from two different companies, NOBODY in their right mind is going to pay much more for one car then the other. Thats competition? what's the problem?
