AT&T is planning to purchase T-Mobile for $39 billion dollars. If you think that’s peanuts then ponder on the savings many consumers will have as a result of consolidating the market. We’re sure that there are a lot of techno geeks salivating about the intricate plans of the merger. The regulations, towers and data packages alone will make your head spin. The best deals on multiple packages will make for a stronger consumer base.
At Fabulous & Money Savvy ™, we’re more concerned with the bottom line. No!!! Not how much this will cost AT&T, but how much the consumers will save when purchasing an “exclusive” phone, unlimited calling and texting plans and better coverage. There are many who would beg to differ about the savings. A consolidated market can possibly drive its prices upward.
All 130 million potential subscribers of AT&T would expect nothing but the best. The three major wireless players Verizon, Sprint and AT&T are aware of what makes a consumer happy. Low plans, more coverage, advanced technology and great customer service. Executing these demands will allow for integrity and deepening relationships, which T-Mobile wasn’t able to accomplish since losing thousands of consumers during its last quarter.
While saving on your cellular bill take the difference and either deposit into your emergency fund, eradicate your debt quicker or secure your retirement. Remember, it’s only savings it you apply it where it matters.
