    Fun Facts

    While researching AT&T's history, here are a couple of fun facts I came across: AT&T stands for American Telephone and Telegraph and is the third largest non-oil company in Texas. AT&T was going to merge with T-Mobile in 2011 but cancelled the merger without either of the carriers having to provide documentation.

    I believe that the merger between AT&T and T-Mobile was blocked under anti-trust laws by the FCC and the Justice Department. It would have given AT&T too large a portion of the market share.

    It may be just my personal opinion, but I believe that the FCC and the Justice Department acted wisely by deciding AT&T and T-Mobile to merge. Why would these two giants become a single company? Would this improve their services in any way?
