Here's some good news for people who don't want the mobile space to get even less competitive than it is now: the federal government has sued to block AT&T from its proposed acquisition of T-Mobile on antitrust grounds.
Just before Florida real estate swindler-cum-hotelier Groucho tries to explain viaduct/why a duck in the Marx Brothers first film, The Cocoanuts, he asks his potential partner in crime-cum-idle roomer Chico if he knows what a "whole lot" — as in real estate lot — is. Replies Chico, "Yeah, it's-a too much." Uh oh. "Any time you gotta too much, you gotta whole lot. Look, I explain it to you. Sometimes you no got enough, it's too much, you gotta whole lot. Sometimes you got a little bit. You no think it's enough, somebody else maybe think it's-a too much, it's-a whole lot too. Now, it's-a whole lot, it's-a too much, it's-a too much, it's-a whole lot — same thing." Pretty funny, except that sounds exactly like the answers you'd get when you ask cell carriers about smart phone, USB modem, MiFi or international data plans and how much 5GB or 10GB is. Well, it's a whole lot.
