From The Article:
In my opinion this is really bad news for consumers. I had a T-mobile plan for years and enjoyed the fact that I could get cell service for $10 less per month than the major carriers. Ultimately this will make an AT&T, Verizon, powerhouse duopoly that no one, including Sprint can even challenge. Hopefully it doesn't make it through justice or the FCC.
AT&T announced on Sunday that it had agreed to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion, in a deal that would create the largest wireless carrier in the nation and promised to reshape the industry.
