ATT I blame this all on at&t. Is at&t really to blame? probably, probably not but either way I think at&t should take the fall for this one. Reason is I have a hunch that T-Mob would fare better if it wasn't for ATT to try to merge with T-Mob, now weather that is true or not is a mystery.
Att will end up helping tmobile in the end with all the free spectrum. The only thing this merger helped in the end was verizon and sprint (Partially)
It may have helped Spent with customers, but their money problem isn't much better. They're focusing on 3 (4 if you count the Clear LTE network) networks, and are still losing thanks to the Apple iPhone deal. If they were smart they would have never took the iPhone, the small customer count they got was NOT worth the money they needed for their LTE build.

I blame this on their Horrible service and limited coverage. Also once again it proves low price is NOT what consumers will take. Sprint continues to bleed and so does T-Mo.
DIE T-Mobile DIE, you Suck and you treat your contract employees like dirt.
DIE DIE DIE DIE and go to HELL!

I'm not so sure... $4 billion and spectrum goes a long way. What TM _really_ needs to do right now is take action to stop bleeding customers and slowly build their base back up. They need to drop all of the stupid/pointless ads and focus more on what made them good... customer service and inexpensive service.

TMO does NOT want the rural areas. If they did they would have covered those LONG ago. CellCo only has those areas due to mergers and buy outs. Sprint is the only one that really built anything in the rural areas and 360Communications (before Alltel and some of what is still Alltel).
Hell Sprint has even shut off a few of those markets and turned them into "roaming networks.
And actually people do want lower plans. Look at prepaid; their adding customers left and right- and contract customers are actually DOWN over all compared to prepaid and lower priced services. Sprint keeps bleeding due to their $$$ issues. They'll never get that under control if they don't stop spending on things that won't help them now.
