• FCC Asks AT&T To Clarify How The T-Mobile Merger Will Add Jobs

    They ain't goin' for it!

    Rick Kaplan, chief of the Federal Communication Commission’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, sent a letter to AT&T on Thursday asking the carrier to clarify just how the proposed merger with T-Mobile USA will add jobs in the United States. “Our review of the information currently in our record suggests that AT&T’s responses on this issue remain incomplete,” Kaplan said. The FCC is giving AT&T until October 31st to address fully “all plans, analyses and reports discussing the creation or loss of jobs” if the merger is approved. AT&T must also disclose how many T-Mobile USA jobs will be eliminated and show how the merger will affect employment inside and outside of the United States during the next five years. AT&T CEO Randall L. Stephenson argued earlier this year that the proposed merger would be a “net job grower” in the United States. On August 31st, AT&T promised to bring 5,000 jobs back to the United States if the merger is approved, which was the same day the U.S. government filed a lawsuit in opposition of the deal. Read [PDF]

      Nor should they. I'm not a T-Mobile customer, but I still hope this is not approved. Competition is GOOD.

      T-Mobile is competition too. Verizon is useless. They follow AT&T's moves... like 2GB data plans. Well, T-Mobile did too!Sprint cant do it on their own.

    The speaker is a bit tinny.. not much bass if you listen to music. It is adequate for phone calls. Much better quality when you use earphones.

    Thanks. I'm between 10 and 35 miles from the nearest cell tower, so looking for the best antenna I can get in one of the iphones within my budget ($600 or less).

    The old "single bucket" feature phones kept track of the "Units" internally, but that was changed to server tracking with the 3 bucket system. I guess there could be an app to act like the Android My...
