    What *I* found interesting is that T-Mo essentially "settled" separately with Mississippi to get them to drop their suit.

    I'm not sure that was a good precedent for T-Mo. It might encourage other states to join in to get their own custom settlements, or encourage the remaining states still in the suit to up the ante and get a higher level of concessions in return for backing out one by one.

    One of the concessions was a pair of low cost wireless plans available to all residents of Mississippi for at least 5 years following the merger: unlimited talk and text w/2GB data for $15/month, and unlimited T&T w/5GB data for $25/month.

    As long as T-Mo is felling so conciliatory, maybe I'll call the Rhode Island AG and ask him to demand that T-Mo guarantee coverage at my mom's house as part of any settlement with that state. It's a real PITA not to have decent service when I visit! It's the smallest state in the union for crissakes! How hard can it be to cover?

    I once got an official state road map of RI. Same size as the official road map of Texas but rather than the dots representing towns and cities, they're houses.

    It's a state of 1 million people, and they have 150 state legislators. When I was a kid, I thought it was wild that my state senator lived on my street. When I got older, I realized everyone's did!

    That's one legislator for every 7000 people! What? Does everyone just take turns?

    Well people might know my stance on the merger. But most probably don’t know my politics. Except for my biggest fan on this site and some of my friends who happen to be on this site. Lol

    Anyways let’s get the merger done.
    Manners cost nothing, and also have the added benefit of making a man. You know, it is entirely possible to rise above others, without stooping to pushing them under, and putting them down.
