Well, if this goes down, I'm probably safe from Price hikes w/my new 2 year contract when I bought my G2-Google HTC w/Unlimited data.

oh yeah!!!!

lets make the most crooked, back stabbing, bandwidth capping, fee charing, POS carrier out there even bigger!!!!

Nothing beats an ATT and Verizon duopoly!!!!!!

And there is no doubt that this will be allowed by our government and regulatory agencies since they are all crooked bastards and will likely be getting tidy "donations" for their support.

They can afford a 39 billion dollar acquisition but can't spend a few billion to upgrade their network infrastructure to support greater bandwidth... fail... i hope this company burns in hell. I can't believe i bought their uverse package.

This is not good news. I have always liked T-Mobile and do not look forward to AT&T, the Comcast of cell phones.

All the money they made through their iPhone exclusivity deal with Apple basically paid for this deal.

Say what you want about AT&T, they're not stupid.

My thoughts exactly....if they have had this much cash lying around who the hell are they to keep capping plans and raising prices?

Just a crooked as the US oil companies....charge record high gas prices....and then record record high profits (meaning their cost did not change at all!)

YAAAYYYY everyone welcome to a world of duopoly and neverending high prices!!!!
I really hope sooner or later gov will break all these huge companies apart into smaller more managable and customer oriented ones like they did with the baby bells back in the day. It looks like it took ATT deathstart around 30 years to melt itself together like that evil terminator once again.

Down goes another independent, free-thinking, trailblazing telecom. Competition giving way yet again to monopolists ...this can't be good. Didn't AT&T learn their lesson back in the 80's when they were forced to break up?

If you don't like ATT or Verizon there are still several other options. I personally don't like ATT but I've had Verizon for years and just accepted the monthly price for a signal wherever I go. And to complain about the American government is obserd. Is it their fault that a company made so much money so that they can aquire another large telecom company? No. If you don't like the way the government handles things then change that with your vote. Although, the current president ran on the platform of "Change"... apparently nothing is changing? Shocking!
