I agree with you when you say the deal should go through FCC without any hiccups, however to say that the FCC doesn't (and shouldn't) care about individual companies and their profit margins, I think you are wrong.

Their job is to protect the consumer, and it is in the consumers interest for the companies to remain profitable. When companies don't remain profitable, they cannot stay in business and we lose competition...example, T-Mobile. The government may have blocked the aquisitions at this time, but don't think for 1 second that DT isn't still going to try and dump the company. They are ok for now and have growth opportunity, but they said themselves, they are worried what happens after their 7 yr roaming agreement is up.

The best way for the FCC to look out for the consumers best interest, is to make sure the companys can opperate within a profit margin.
