1. Hello Kevin, I thoroughly enjoy your AT&T arceltis. They convey common sense and facts on the directive of Big Blue.Your first paragraph had a quotation that explains AT&T’s persuasive attitude towards this deal. They claim that if they need to have restrictive measures on the merge, then they would rather Scrap the whole idea. The truth now presides with no refutable argument. If a company is going to control such a large percentage of prime spectrum holdings, they should have government mandate imposed regulations. Imagine our current utilities without the regulations that are in place. Now, transpose that detriment to our telecommunications industry. ATT clearly wants to smother out competition by acquiring all the spectrum it can, then forbid any other carrier to use it through roaming agreements. Shame on AT&T. Shame on those not viewing the complete scope of the landscape on what AT&T is trying to do. We must all remember that this is the same company that possessed a monopoloy in the 50s and 60s, to finally be broken up in ’84. They are looking to reunite. John B.
