    Hi all,

    I have been outspoken against the merger, of AT&T and T-Mobile, b/c if Canada is any example of a very large firm taking over a smaller rival, then we here in the States are screwed. There was a huge jump in cell call rates. In addition, if 2 year deals aren't bad enough, now a Canadian cell provider Rogers, is trying to ram three year deals down the customer's throats. In the 2 years I had a contract on my Centro, Palm dropped the OS and introduced an new OS along with the Pre, Pre Plus & the Veer. Three years is OLD in terms of cell tech!

    take care,

    Jay

    Some AT&T customers seeking to block T-Mobile merger

    Some AT&T customers seeking to block T-Mobile merger | ZDNet

    Not everyone is in favor of the proposed merger of AT&T and T-Mobile. Obviously, thereís Sprint. But some of AT&Tís own customer base is speaking out against the deal too.

    Well, at least 11 customers are upset. Certainly, there could be many, many more people within AT&Tís customer base that are unhappy about the proposition, but these guys are so against the merger to the point where theyíre willing to hire lawyers and file arbitration cases to full out block it.

    Specifically, this band of customers are basing their claims on the most obvious argument against the merger of two of the nationís largest carriers: it could seriously deter (or completely prevent) competition.

    A group of lawyers has filed arbitration cases on behalf of 11 AT&T customers in hope of blocking the companyís planned $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA.

    The New York-based firm of Bursor & Fisher law firm filed a 236-page arbitration demand on Thursday, alleging that the proposed deal would harm competition in violation of the Clayton Antitrust Act.
