Can they leave T-Mobile alone now?

I mean, they're only buying T-Mobile for more spectrum(screw the customers and employees), so if they're just going to buy more this way, how about they not destroy the jobs of most of 40,000 T-Mo employees?

Dude, destroy jobs? T-mobile employees will either get a HUGE check if they lose their jobs or get a HUGE check if they work for AT&T. Seems like a win win.

T-Mobile employees will only get that HUGE(hahahaha, you obviously haven't seen the amounts) check for a severance if they are terminated without cause, OR if they're offered a position more than 50 miles away and refuse it. AT&T could easily offer T-Mobile reps a job that's 49 miles away from their current location, and they get nothing if they refuse it.

And those HUGE(hahahahaha) retenion bonus checks? They're not that huge, and reps get half of it when the deal goes through, and the other half six months later--assuming they're still around.

AT&T has made it quite clear they only care about the spectrum. They'll divest half the company if they have to. Employees and customers are expendable.

If I were rich, I wouldn't be worried about losing my job to this bogus merger, would I?

Leave TMO alone? It was their parent DT who wanted to sell. Why don't you call Bonn and ask for their CEO and tell them how you don't think its fair and its not right, I'm sure we will hear the laughing all the way from there.

I'm thrilled you seem to know what DT executives are thinking, but I feel the need to point out that even if the deal doesn't go through, DT gets $3 billion, plus a chunk of AT&T's spectrum holdings. So it isn't necessarily like they were desperate to sell.

You forgot to include a roaming agreement.
