I watched the live C-SPAN stream, and I can tell you that Stephenson is a major liar! He claimed that T-Mobile isn't a competitor to them, and that the government should examine this merger on a market by market basis, instead of on a national basis.
First of all, T-Mobile is a major competitor to them. Even the senate saw through that lie from Stephenson. I know what he meant by T-Mobile not being a major competitor. He means that he is more worried about Verizon's marketing and business, compared to T-Mobile. AT&T will not move on something, unless Verizon does it first.
Stephenson probably told Humm, to keep quiet, and let me do the talking. lol. I
Sohn told him, that "You never see AT&T attacking MetroPCS in their ads". lol, its true.
AT&T always tries to block people from having something. They blocked T-Mobile from having the iPhone. They know T-Mobile at the time, was cheaper with the MyFaves, and Get More plans. They wouldn't have stood a chance against T-Mobile's rate plans with the iPhone.
I remember being in an AT&T store on 34th Street across from Macy's in NYC, and these two guys were in the store. One of them complained and said AT&T is such garbage. I can't get anything to work. They are garbage compared to Verizon, and I might switch back to Verizon. When I heard that, I started to laugh, cause everyone knows AT&T is trash.
Another time on the subway, a girl was saying she wants the iPhone, but she doesn't want to go to AT&T, cause she heard so many bad things about them.
