AT&T started doing dances in the end zone and showing their backside after the merger between them and Time Warner was allowed by the US District Court. And as part of the celebration customers were alerted to a gift in a nice price increase.
Now the Justice Department is looking to appeal the merger for reason of competition. Of course AT&T is not happy with that and has responded accordingly. But while AT&T may not be happy I sure am. Look I am all for companies expanding if it results in better deals and options for the customers. Not every buyout is a bad thing. But in this case we already started seeing some of the intentions of AT&T show. And personally as a customer I was not liking it. We will have to see if the DOJ is able to make a successful appeal.
