    Exactly. There are a lot of positives to the merger, and no negatives.

    There are a lot of negatives to blocking the merger, and no positives.

    The negatives are for the larger competition getting a viable third carrier that will challenge their status and business model. A free market is like water, it seeks it’s own level.

    *Sigh* Wireless isn't, never was, and never will be, a free market. By definition, a true free market can't deal in a limited resource.

    T-Mobile 5G Pricing Ambiguity

Then a few years down the road when 5G is commonplace, it just gets included with all plans, like HD is usually included on modern cable plans today.

    The mention of Messaging no make a me think of RCS. Wonder what the status of that is?
    Verizon has 5G Data for free right now.

    But yeah it’s all a shell game.
    First 5G is included free.
    Then they charge $20 more for 5G.
    Then they come out with the Magenta Two plan and 5G is $20 more on Basic but is included on Premium.
    Then the Magenta 3 plan comes out and there is no basic option anymore.

    Then some MVNO or some disruptor comes along and says everyone deserves 5G and all the Carriers copycat and it’s free again.

    Your claim applies to every endeavor that is regulated. Rendering it moot.
