I haven’t read a ton about the proposed AT&T takeover of T-Mobile yet, beyond AT&T’s own quotes on how good this is for everyone and I’m wondering if, as an AT&T customer, this is a good thing for me, or if I’ll even notice.
My gut reaction is to guess that, for those of us existing AT&T customers, nothing will change, or things may change a little bit for the better (due to an expanded network). For T-mobile customers, I have a feeling this is kind of a bad deal, just because T-mobile has traditionally offered much cheaper plans than AT&T.
Overall, I’m inclined to believe that less competition in the cell phone market = bad.
But again, these are just my guesses and I’m curious if anyone out there has any good feedback/links on this deal. Please comment if you have any insights or links (I’ll update this post as I get/read them).
