only "X" amount in order to access there money that allows them to maintain some clarity in there mergers. The T­mobile and ATT merger I am thinking was stopped because of the problems associated with Bell Systems remember "Ma Bell" its what everyone called the telephone system for decades ­ She held power over everything ­ you wanted to attach something to a telephone pole you talked to Ma Bell, you wanted to use the United States Telephone Network period you talked to Ma Bell if she said no to anything related to telephones or telephone poles you did not get it. I grew up having everything sent through Ma Bell and I remember that ATT is actually a wholly owned subsidiary of Ma Bell. ATT aka Ma Bell

RE: Monopolies and Antitrust Law Iryna Hlushanok 11/21/2016 8:10:20 PM There has to be a healthy competition in the market. There arenn't that many cellular companies on the market. And if AT&T was allowed to buy T­Mobile, it would eventually buy out other cellular companies, which would remove all the competition on the market and drove the prices up.

My personal dispute on this case is that under the Sherman Act, companies are prosecuted if there is evidence of conspiracy to monopolize and that have a plan of action to destroy competition (Seaquist, 2012, Violations of the Sherman act, para. 3). Therefore, was there actual evidence of such actions to destroy competition? I
