BUT HERE IS TO HOPING SATURN GIRL WORKS FOR AT&T!!!
Awhile back, Bleeding Cool pointed out a probable inspiration for Carly of T-Mobile’s “uniform.” Now, the days of wearing pink may be over. AT&T may be buying T-Mobile and so that would mean no more T-Mobile ads featuring Carly and her negativity against AT&T.
But some things to consider about this nearly $40 billion merger: “First, AT&T will need the FCC’s approval to acquire T-Mobile’s spectrum licenses. But the deal is also certain to face a thorough investigation by the Justice Department, according to people familiar with the matter” according to Market Watch. With T-mobile out of the way, there will be only Verizon and Sprint standing in AT&T’s way, basically setting up an unevenly matched duopoly, between Verizon and AT&T. With AT&T’s current monopoly on iPhones, what is to stop them, besides the FCC from standing in their way?
Honestly, as a committed libertarian, I believe in the free market, but a free market that is liberated for the sake of the consumer. There are laws on the books; there problems lie not with the regulations, but the regulators who refuse to do their job. At the same time, from AT&T’s view, cell phone consumers do not make choices nationally, but rather regionally, which is a valid point. Really, I have no beef with AT&T since I do not own an iphone nor do I plan on getting one. If the deal goes through, can AT&T at least keep Saturn Girl as its spokesperson?
Or for the orange and blue of AT&T, perhaps we can ask the Orange Lantern:
