If you are AT&T, you may get T-Mobile and a monopoly: In an unprecedented move, AT&T said that it will be throttling the bandwidth of some of the remaining unlimited data plan users and indicated that only the approval of the T-Mobile merger might solve its bandwidth problems. Honestly, we haven't heard such a boatload of garbage in a long time. We have to admit it is a gutsy move. The AT&T message in a few words, I am paraphrasing: "Dear U.S. government, we are somewhat tired of the questioning our acquisition of T-Mobile. Give us what we want, or we have to kill the unlimited data plan we once agreed to. On second thought, we'll kill it anyway, and think of something else, if you don't give us T-Mobile." So, what do you guys think?
