    Except John used to be a shirt-haired corporate-suited wonk in the AT&T organization, and his entire tenure at T-Mo seems to be focused on growing T-Mo to AT&T's level to thumb his nose at his former...

    "Nine states" have NOT dropped out of the lawsuit, only the two that settled with T-Mo have (Mississippi and Colorado.)

    Sure you can, when the latter is a limited time sham to cover up that the real plan is really the former.

    Why are we looking at this positively?

    This is like when Walmart comes into a small town, undercuts the local grocery and hardware store, forcing them out of business, then a few years later...

    I sort of meant free wireless for the agencies (like this T-Mo bribe is offering), not free personal-use wireless for the individuals themselves... :)

    Maybe it's just my bleeding heart liberalism, but when you think about it, why are public servants paying anything to use public spectrum in the first place? Let them buy the hardware and use the...

    I'm not calling them a-holes, I'm calling them sleazy opportunists. (Sleazy for the fine print gotchas- and yes, all the carriers do that, but T-Mo pretends they're better than all the others, so...

    My point was that 100GB/year isn't a lot of bandwidth that requires a new network to offer. MVNOs will currently offer anyone that amount of data that for $20/month or less. They may need Sprint's...

    Most that dropped out have already settled separately for deals that benefit their state, e.g. Mississippi got rural coverage guarantees, Colorado got DISH's promise to headquarter their wireless...

    I'm not sure who my "sacred cows" are supposed to be. I've been a T-Mo customer continuously since 2001, and am also a stockholder. That doesn't mean I think the merger is a good idea (I don't), that...

    I doubt they'll "fold like a house of cards"- I suspect they'll fight for better (or at least longer) guarantees, and clear penalties/reparations if New T-Mo doesn't live up to their claims

    For me, it's not about Sprint, it's about T-Mobile. T-Mo is (was?) only a disruptive force in wireless because they had to be. They couldn't compete on coverage, so they competed on price and...

    T-Mo may someday also be the first 6G provider to wirelessly beam data directly to your Psychotelekinectic Ray Helmet, too, but the current T-Mo home internet...

    Interesting take. It could definitely go that way if all the stars align.

    Me, I'm a cynic and a pessimist. Personally, I think T-Mo will let a lot of the as yet unused rural spectrum they get from...

    I really appreciated the T-Mo Digits app when we travelled to Europe this summer. That allowed me to take T-Mo calls and texts when using a local prepaid SIM, without my T-Mo SIM installed.

    I'm skeptical about T-Mo's wireless ISP offering. Cool idea in theory, but I suspect the reality will be a lot like T-Mo's "game changing" TV service- overpriced and underwhelming. Nothing against...

    The problem is, when you negotiate a settlement, there's going to be give and take, and neither side will get everything they ask for. Mississippi may be willing to concede things NY wouldn't, and...
