T-Mobile Wants the FCC to Look on the Bright Side of MergerJune 11, 2011 2 Comments
T-Mobile filed a letter with the FCC sepcifying benefits that would be a result of a merger between itself and AT&T. This comes after many major companies came together and submitted statements to the FCC in support of a merger between AT&T and T-Mobile. T-Mobile’s letter states:
As our filing with the FCC today explains, the winners of the proposed merger with AT&T will be consumers, as the extra capacity will enable us to alleviate escalating capacity constraints, increase output, support the next generation of bandwidth-intensive mobile applications, and offer them faster data speeds, extended coverage and fewer dropped callsâ€¦We are pleased that the regulatory process is moving forward, and we remain confident that the FCC will weigh all the facts and approve this deal.
I can’t say that I am convinced that this merger would benefit consumers. In fact, I can’t imagine what good will come from this. I have been a happy T-Mobile customer for a while now and having taken the time to compare prices, I can’t imagine my continued happiness as a wireless phone user if they jack up the prices.
