It’s like a match made from heaven. Phone heaven, that is.
AT&T recently bought T-Mobile for $39 billion to become the largest wireless communications company in the U.S. But for every winner, there is a loser.
Among the winners is, of course, AT&T. It could mean better coverage and give soon-to-be former T-Mobile customers the option to upgrade to the Apple-manufactured iPhone and iPad without having to sign a new carrier deal. This is good news.
On the down side, though, there is the possibility of layoffs for T-Mobile employees. In a dog-eat-dog world, or in this case, bigger-dog-eat-very-little-dog, the bigger dog triumphs and the little dog gets slaughtered, to put it kindly.
