I have to wonder sometimes how our wonderful government comes up with their decisions.

Cases in point, when AT&T wanted to merge with T-Mobile, they said absolutely not, it would decrease competition, raise prices and reduce offered services.

But when Sprint decided they wanted buy out the remaining half of Clear, they were given the go ahead with no apparent reservations. And as soon as the sale was complete, the bandwidth was cut by 80% and the price is being increased by 10%. All because Sprint wants to force customers to more expensive, capped, wireless internet.

And now, we have two smaller, shitty cable companies, Comcast and Time Warner, that are being allowed to merge.

So why is one instance bad for consumers but the others are good. All will have the same outcome, poorer service, higher rates, less competition.
