Re: Doing the right thing
No one disputed that this was a good move for AT&T and their shareholders (and possibly their customers).
The issue is that neither of those statements matters, at all!
This merger is a terrible, terrible thing for the United States wireless marketplace in general.
The FCC and the DoJ don't care if this is a good thing for the individual carriers involved, and they're not supposed to care about how this impacts the business model or profitability of the carriers involved.
The FCC and the DoJ have a guiding principle to protect the whole ecosystem, not to protect or destroy individual players in the ecosystem.
The FCC and DoJ are actually doing their job properly on this acquisition investigation.
How often can you say that about a Federal Agency?
