Verizon is basically blocking T-Mobile from expanding, if it ever does after the ATT crap, and its cutting sprint out of the 4g mix. I know this is just part of business, but it seems that verizon is making a play to sink sprints ship and hog as much spectrum as it can.
I think it's funny that the tables have turned. It seemed a while ago that AT&T is the bad guy, now Verizon seems to be. It's also funny that both issues seem to be focused on bandwidth usage and expansion; I mean if you look at it, both are trying to push the small men out, which in this case always seems to be Sprint.
Still, I'm going to wait to see how this turns out. I mean if the AT&T/T-Mobile merger is having trouble, then just imagine what could happen with Verizon and it's newly acquired bandwidth.

Well I'm a man that disagrees with monopolies, but it's hard to stop them when they're just starting to grow big. Big I said, not a giant yet.
Well Verizon, Comcast, and Time Warner all basically have monopolies in certain section of the country already. What I think is eventually is we will only have one company to choose from which will most likely be government sponsored. It would be the only way to have a robust network. The problem with that model of course is that without competition where is the incentive to innovate and build out the network further.
This is much like the At&t-mobile thing really and removes players from the market these players are just not as visible and therefore less widely supported as a brand. The big thing with all of this is even more insidious really than the At&tT-mo thing is because it is behind the general consumers back and will go unnoticed and will most likely therefore happen. As far as it goes Verizon is one of the owners of America in general just like Comcast is At&t is kind of like a hated step parent!
Hopefully they will not get too carried away with take overs.
its Veriz0wn not Verizon..
