ATT is trying to buy T-Mobile. We will then have 2 communications giants, which will have free rein to invent all manner of fees and explain the existing rates away, via technical jargon. The deal will need regulatory approval, but with Congress in their pockets anyway, it's just a matter of time.

I can't see this going through as-is. One GSM carrier? Also, remember that Verizon is the largest wireless lobby in the US, AT&T is pretty uninvolved and T-Mobile is completely out of the political game.
