Another take on why ATT buyout should be blocked.
AT&T is terrible at managing their network compared to T-Mobile. And the service and support has only really begun improving late last year. It will take quite a lot of time for AT&T to catch up in terms of overall quality to the levels expected by T-Mobile customers. And AT&T will crush T-Mobileâ€™s open culture after the acquisition is complete, in favor of AT&Tâ€™s monopolistic conservative culture.
AT&T also doesnâ€™t really get open networks and open solutions. Their Android devices are locked down, with sideloading blocked. They are the only carrier in the world that does that, by the way. AT&T prefers nickel-and-diming customers instead of making them happy enough to continue staying with AT&T, which is
I really do think that this will benefit Sprint. Dan Hesse doesn't seem to think so. But heck, these people are with Tmo because they don't want to pay the prices of ATT/Vzn, so the alternative would be Sprint.
And with reguards to creating another Alltel. Wouldn't that require some sort of venture capitalist investment firm?
i am not sure if it will benefit sprint. i dont see how yet. (i didnt analyze that part yet so my comment is premature)
i didnt mean to create one by making a whole VC firm, but i meant it could create one. for instance, there might be some carriers like metropcs that could gain these assets and then can start to become a powerhouse. (again sorta like an alltel)
yes i will be watching that. i am always excited watching those sorta things. i watched the SIRI/XMSR merger.
I wonder if the Chairman of the FCC will be in attendance for the hearing, they should listen to his input.
it will be VERY interesting.
