    FCC Requests Comments from the Public Regarding AT&T/T-Mobile Merger


    The United States FCC is currently considering the AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile, and has created an online Electronic Comment Filing System, to find out what the general public thinks of it. You can head over to the link below and leave your opinion on whether the AT&T buyout of T-Mobile would be good or bad for you as a consumer and the industry as a whole. We don't want to steer you in a certain direction, but most of us hold the opinion that this merger would be bad for the industry and consumers. The folks at AndroidPolice summed it up nicely with the following points:
    • A lack of competition resulting from fewer, larger carriers may result in less innovation and increased prices.
    • Both carriersí 4G HSPA+ bands are incompatible, risking loss of coverage for T-Mobile handsets once AT&T LTE starts rolling out
    • Only one major carrier will be buying GSM handsets, meaning they will have the lionís share of control over the GSM devices that make it to the U.S. market

    Ultimately, with AT&T in control of more Androids than ever, it could also hurt the developing Android market as well, since AT&T doesn't exactly have the greatest track record with Androids or customer service.

    Regardless of your perspective, sound off in this thread and go make it public at the FCC link. Make sure you choose The AT&T docket #11-65.

    Good to hear. I don't see this merger happening. Too many hurdles
