AT&t and Spectrum

by Rodimus Primal    Jun 3, 2011, 5:01 PM

After hearing so much negative bashing I think its time people realize WHY AT&T is doing what they are doing. They know how their network works. They are aware of their faults and they have been recently VERY OPEN about it. They are looking to expand and boost their service to their customers regardless of opinion. It drives me MAD to see so many people bashing AT&T with their recent push to purchase T-Mobile.

People didn't complain that Sprint bought Nextel. At the time, Nextel was unable to stay competitive and Sprint saw an opportunity. Same thing with Verizon buying Alltel. Instead we see a HUGE opposition to AT&T. People say it creates a lack of competition. Didn't that happen when Sprint bought Nextel and Verizon bought Alltel? NO!!! Instead it caused both companies to grow whether in a good way and a bad way. Sure the AMOUNT of competion decreases, but its still there. Sprint should see this as opportunity to gain customers whom don't want to be part of Big Blue. Verizon is wisely staying quiet, although their fanboys are NOT.

AT&T sees its weaknesses and Duetche Telekom no longer wants to do business as T-Mobile. That's why the two are coming together. The two together will help customers on both networks have excellent coverage in a GSM based system. Also Verizon is going to LTE, which is a GSM based system. They are going to be converting their network over and its MUCH easier for them being they have so much spare spectrum. AT&T is looking to do the same and T-Mobile's spectrum combined with AT&T would provide services in places that both would have to spend YEARS developing.

Sorry if my rant is long, but I had to get this off my chest. All carriers are looking at ways to improve and to bash AT&T for trying to so shows how much Kool-Aid you drink.
