    We first heard about AT&T wanting to acquire T-Mobile last month and this had some of AT&T and T-Mobile customers worried. AT&T has made a few announcements and commented on a couple of things in the meantime, one being that the 4G expansion would happen a lot sooner since the 4G was already available with T-Mobile. Below is what AT&T had to say:

    In just the first five-to-seven weeks of 2015, AT&T expects to carry all of the mobile traffic volume it carried during 2010, the carrier said in its filing. This merger provides by far the surest, fastest and most efficient solution to that challenge. The network synergies of this transaction will free up new capacity the functional equivalent of new spectrum in the many urban, suburban and rural wireless markets where escalating broadband usage is fast consuming existing capacity.

    One of the worries that customers had about AT&T acquiring T-Mobile were price changes. For those worried about changing of prices, AT&T had this to say:

    With this acquisition, T-Mobile USA consumers will be able to keep their current rate plans, said AT&T. AT&T will map T-Mobile USAs rate plans into AT&Ts billing systems as we have done in the case of prior acquisitions, so that if a T-Mobile USA consumer wishes to change her existing smartphone to a comparable smartphone from AT&Ts device portfolio, she will be able to keep her existing data plan.

    Final statement from AT&T:

    The bottom line is that our merger with T-Mobile USA will offer significant benefits to American consumers. It will address capacity constraints that both of our companies face, which will enable the combined company to provide improved services in the many urban, suburban, and rural markets where the enormous surge in broadband usage is fast consuming available capacity,
