I'm not referring to the board game.
AT&T announced over the weekend that it plans to purchase rival T-Mobile for $39 billion. Assuming it receives regulatory approval to do so, it would become the largest mobile phone network in the U.S.
As a result, customers will likely no longer be able to opt for T-Mobile's relatively inexpensive service plans.
As the big mega-corporations continue to buy up the competition, the consumer almost always loses.
Fewer choices, higher prices.
And the CEOs keep laughing all the way to the bank.
