T-Mobile Wants the FCC to Look on the Bright Side of Merger

June 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 calls…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.

    Consumers benefit from competition!  Current AT&T customers may get some benefit from the additional bandwidth but the current T-Mobile customers will basically get jail-raped!  I am a former customer of ALL the other carriers (except the current Verizon)  and my last carrier was AT&T…  I loath the thought of being forced in to AT&T or Verizon!  Sprint will be absorbed by Verizon in order for them to compete with the New AT&T!  Then were are we?
