If ATT acquires Tmobile. They will be able to control prices a lot better than without Tmobile. Why? ATT and Verizon already own most of the network backhaul and core fiber wirelines in America. They rent and charge fees for other mobile networks to use their backhaul and interconnecting them. Sprint and others(MetroPCS, etc) will be the only ones left behind without a core network and they will have to raise their prices if ATT/Verizon agree to raise their fees. That is a lot of leverage. ATT/Verizon already dislike Sprint for having cheaper plans. Ironically, most Verizon customers swear by God that Verizon is the cheapest deal. LOL.

Actually USCC will still be there with their own core network. Yeah they are the "Little Guy" of the national carriers, but they are still growing and profitable. Not saying they are going to be a major competitor for ATT or Ver in the near future by any means, but they will slowly suck up the fallout from every carrier just like they have done for years and years! Eventually they will become a major player!

Nope, just about the opposite in all respects.

First, USCC is not a national carrier, rather a regional carrier.

Second, USCC cannot become a "major player" where it does not have spectrum.

Third, USCC does not want to compete nationally with VZW and AT&T.

A national carrier or...
