Friday Poll: AT&T + T-Mobile = No love?

The Department of Justice is trying to break up the AT&T acquisition of T-Mobile. If the merger is allowed to go through, are you going to clap your hands or shake your head?

AT&T merger with T-Mobile

The AT&T and T-Mobile merger is like waiting for "The Bachelorette" follow-up show.

The two companies are engaged, but will outside forces tear them apart? Will the wedding ever happen? I can't stand the suspense.

The Department of Justice is putting its foot down on the merger. It filed suit earlier this week to block the $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile by AT&T.

The feds are worried that the merger runs afoul of antitrust laws and could hamper the sort of competition that egged T-Mobile on to bring us important geeky things like the world's first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1.

I'm sensing some mixed emotions from consumers. For some, bigger is better. For others, this could signal higher prices and less choice.

So let's play pretend. Pretend the AT&T and T-Mobile merger goes through. After all, the Justice Department suit isn't a death knell.

Are you going to host a merger party to celebrate? Will you mourn the absorption of plucky T-Mobile into the Borg collective of AT&T? Vote in our poll and let us hear more about it in the comments.
