Please refrain from opening your mouth if you can't read about something in full before spouting negative propaganda.

^Did you READ my comments? I think not! They were directed at AT&T! AT&T is spending $39B and creating nothing.

I wonder what will happen with the T-Mobile 3G towers if this goes through? Will they change them to AT&T's frequency or keep the AWS on the T-Mobile's towers? For me I can roam on T-Mobile's 3G but when roaming on AT&T I get EDGE so I am curious how that's going to work out.

^Creating ZERO, nothing new. Plain and simple.

Rather than playing the role of a three year old. Please explain how this is not creating something. Explain how this does not improve...
3. Speed of availability of an LTE network that will reach 95% penetration.
Please explain this instead of just spouting your "nuh uh" mentality.

^That ALREADY exists now! A little programing change and it could be used now!
Nothing New!! Plain and simple.

They need new products. Coverage is really nothing new except gain of area.CHAZER99

Nothing new. No new towers, no new coverage (where coverage did not exist before), no increased speed, no new features. Nothing new.
$39B to buy out something that already exists. What a waste of money.

True. That corporate mumbo-jumbo is AT%T caring about stock and profits not the best coverage and quality. Although they did do a major billion dollar 3G expansion with Qualcomm in order to improve 3G speed and coverage.CHAZER99

Obviously the spectrums will need to be matched up but there is a lot that goes into these changes. ATT is already working on hardward upgrades in more rural areas as it is. The companies are not mutually exclusive just because they are both GSM. Yes there is programming changes that have to be made but many are far from simple. Not all companies use the same software or even the same hardware. Optimization and stardardization will need to play a major role. Finding out what hardware and software benefits both companies networks the best. Companies use hundreds if not thousands of internal applications just to see a product from A-Z. If both companies have their own cultures and standards these have to be optimized and standardized to maximize growth while incurring minimal costs over time. It's not just a matter of updating a piece of code to communicate cross platform.

^^That corporate mumbo-jumbo is AT&T worrying about their corporate planes, private yachts, beach front properties, million dollar salaries, and multi-million dollar bonuses!!
This does not help the consumer. No additional anything.
If fact, consumer choices are reduced.

^You don't know business very well. Retired VP Manager here.
This is nothing new. Grow by acquisition, or grow internally.
Growth by acquisition creates nothing new. Rebranding, elimination of duplication jobs, less choices.
Plain and simple. Nothing new.
