Now word is out that the merger is official, How many of you believe service will get better? I believe Cingular won't improve service at the customer service level, and with the money they spent just to keep Vodaphone from buying AT&T will make it difficult for them to pay for upkeep. On top of that, I wonder how many AT&T customers will drop their service because they don't want to be a Cingular customer. I know that the AT&T customers that had Cingular before will be the first to drop their service. I have a friend that's with AT&T (TDMA) and I was told by him that he intends to pay the early termination fee just so he won't have to deal with Cingular.
They have to sell off some assetts in 11 states, mainly in areas where there's little competition. I wonder if they mean sell off some towers to allow a competitor to enter the market and offer service.
I thought Cingular would have had to divest AT&T Chicago because of overlap, but Cingular will get to acquire all of AT&T's assetts in Chicago.
I don't believe Cingular will be the largest service for long. Even with the new map, their network isn't close to the size of Verizon Wireless's network (minus extended network). Whoever said that Cingular will be the largest service is basing it on customer base, not the coverage of the USA.
