As rough as the economy has been with all the small and large corporate businesses alike closing because they just cannot afford to stay open, now we have AT&T merging with T-Mobile and actually shutting down the individually owned T-Mobile dealers. This is in part because the company wants to save money.
On top of the fact that AT&T/T-Mobile will be striking a blow to the independent dealers, the same store owners are forbidden to talk with AT&T while the wheels of this merger are in motion. So, as it stands although the owners know that stores will be closing, they have no idea when the axe will be dropped on their location.
From all sides, this merger has caused controversy. There’s the press release about T-mobile letting everyone know what they think of all the opposition. Then there’s Dan Hesse, CEO of Sprint, doing homework on how AT&T can increase their network capacity.
From the looks of it this merger is happening whether we like it or not. What are your thoughts on this whole ordeal. Let us know in the comments.
