Yes it may be better for consumers as far as productivity and and connection but what about the price of the product what happens if the deal is able to move forweard in the future. What then happens to the price i believe it will sky rocket seeing as how att and verizon will now own the biggest share of the market and are already the highest priced carriers sprint will then be forced to sell out cause lets face it about 17 percent of the market cant compete this should never be allowed to go through. Best intrest of the consumer come on now this is a smoke screen. Lower the price thats in the best intrest and that will never happen

By eliminating T-Mobile, AT&T just made Sprint the only low-priced contract provider in the industry. I have T-Mobile because of the customer service and the low prices, and if I am not able to keep my pricing with the merger I will look for another low-priced vendor (i.e. NOT AT&T or Verizon).

I see MetroPCS as the company that will move into T-Mobile's empty slot. Now that they are getting Android phones, their ridiculously low prices look very attractive. Am I incorrect in saying that they are currently the #5 service provider?

They will be forced to file bankruptcy if they continue down the road they are going.

And their failure will not be because of some acquisition, it will be because they have a horrible business model.

I thought Metro owned their own towers? Even if they don't, AT&T + Verizon can't force them out of business because the anti-trust lawyers will jump on that like flies on poop. Pre-paid carriers exist simply because there is a market for them. LOTS of people can't afford a regular cell plan, or don't have enough credit to get one.

Any why will Sprint be forced to sell? I mean, the DoJ is on the AT&T sale: what makes you think they'll be less vigilant with a Sprint/Verizon merger?
