I have alternated between Sprint and Tmobile for years because they typically alternated between best value for their plan. AT&T and Verizon were always a poor bargain (at least for my family pricing). It wouldn't surpise me to see Verizon purchase Sprint next. The three horse race will turn into two fat and rich horses...

I keep trying to get away. Moved to Cingular first (where did that get me)then to T-Mobile!

I can only hope that AT&T Wireless is buying T-Mobile for their excellent customer service and the unlocked phones. Yeah, right?

I've been with T-Mobile for nearly 10 years, constantly making sure my rates are the best available and my equipment just what I want, and I've never been disappointed (tho admittedly don't want an iPhone). Even T-Mobile's data plan is superb. AT&T Wireless has always been much higher priced. And T-Mobile's customer service is excellent, from billing to tech support - wish other industries gave as good cust svc. You can bet the best prices in the cellular service will disappear if AT&T gets to take over T-Mobile. Fewer real carriers and less competition but no additional benefits - consumers will lose. I'm not into big government but maybe this one should be denied since there likely won't be a top-notch competitively-priced carrier any more.

There are currently 4 major carriers in the market. After the acquisition, there will still be 3 - AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Sprint might have to find it way out and look for a buyer. Even it happens shortly, the anti-trust case is still difficult to build. Given AT&T doesn't have the advantage of sole carrier of Apple iPhone, the future of mobile market lies not only on the mobile infrastructure (LTE and Network backbone) but also on the extra services that the carrier can bring to the customer. Whether AT&T can build the business to the point of alerting the administration,... only future can tell.

Bad news, for the industry AND consumers; this is the AT&T kiss of death to T-Mobile's good customer service and coverage. We will see if someone in the present administration grows a pair and puts a stop to this miss-guided effort; unlike what happened when they bent over for the plain folk on Wall Street, who of course are merely "Doing God's Work"....imagine what technological and process advances could be realized with the direct and indirect dollars lost to the Great Recession...thank you Wall Street & Washington

I hope the US Commerce and Justice Departments prevent this proposed acquisition from occurring. This proposed deal violates US anti-trust laws and would cause harm to the US economy and consumers. AT&T had to be busted up once for controlling an entire segment of the economy, and if the Obama administration will do their job and prevent this acquisition perhaps the next Republican administration won't have to bust up AT&T a second time as President Reagan did in the 80s.

This is bad for consumers in the long run. Having fewer carriers will invariably mean AT&T's currently abysmal pricing and practices will get even worse.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
