Nothing good every came from lack of competition.. you think we would have learned that by now.

Same here for phone and internet. For a cell phone I have a go-phone, buy 100 minutes a month for $ 10 which suites my needs

Any time I hear mega corporations talk about win situations for consumers, I become instinctually nervous as that sounds like a mega oxymoron...

I totally agree.  I can't even think of one that didn't cost more and give consumers less.

Although I could not open nbcnews, I read the reports on MarketWatch and Fortune, and it's going to be BAD NEWS for users. 

Says Buzz whose cell phone cost the equivalent of US$40 cash and having bought minutes for the equivalent of about US$33 four years ago (they do not expire here) am yet to use up half of them.

Good luck.

The Wall Street Journal is more optimistic.

I've had a cellphone (electronic leash) for 30 years. I'm paying 1/3 of what I used to pay. Americans pay 5 to 10 times what everybody else on the planet pays for service. Prices on 4G will fall thru the floor as the 5G infrastructure is built. The merger by these 2 companies is to survive the new tech coming that's just over the horizon.
