Not good for T-Mobile...

Well, being Canadian, it doesn't affect me directly. However, talking to about half a dozen buddies of mine, who are on a T-Mobile now, AT&T will likely NOT get the customer base they are after. Every person I talked to is adamant on dumping T-Mobile the moment the deal is approved, and go with a small regional carrier... In short - they are willing to put up with some inconveniences to avoid falling into AT&T big hairy arms again... T-Mobile will lose customers, and AT&T will not be getting them back, by the looks of it...
