Re: market concentration â‰ consumer choice
So while it appears you and I both agree on why Sprint and/or other carriers conduct their moves to remain relevant, I also don't follow suit with "The only GSM carrier" vs The only CDMA carrier. Since all carriers are adopting LTE, this argument is falling weaker in substance. What we disagree on however, is our stance on the said merger. Given very little choices for national carrier(and soon the loss of Tmobile), AT&T's possible merge, would give them 51% control and pricing, leaving Sprint to tread further water while Verizon waits to pounce on yet another victim of circumstance. I'm not willing to see an 80% control from only two carriers.
I understand the possibility of no other purchasers, but I also recognize and notate that there is indeed other options nonetheless where individuals feel there isn't. I want that choice.
I merely stress that the consumers need to recognize that a merge of this magnitude is very bad.
I would be curious in how you feel this merge is good for the entire industry. Not just AT&T/Tmobile customers. I am aware of few benefits, yet know that the lack of them, greatly offsets the advantages. Ultimately, that is what we should all be concerned about.
