AT&T Launches Trial Balloon

According to Reuters:

AT&T Inc has been exploring a possible bid for a European carrier such as Vodafone Group Plc, but faces resistance from some investors concerned about the continent’s cut-throat competition and complex regulations.”

That’s not half the problem…

Just to be clear on a few misconceptions that AT&T might have:

  • Europe as far as telecom goes, est le cours de grande, I hope you don’t expect the same monopolistic margins you command in the US.
  • Whatever spin your financial (or marketing) people are spinning, represents desperation.
  • Americans would be better served if a European telecom bought AT&T.
  • Hello. Remember T-Mobile?

I wonder who runs this company.
