Now, you might say who cares! Well, I do and pretty much any telecom person out there will care. AT&T is the definition of telecommunications, the pilar the copper cables, wire runs, and innovation. Also, a dying star that just wont fade away. So, what does SBC buying AT&T mean? Well, for one SBC’s chance to enter the "enterprise" market, which would not move away SBC from the home market but expand its grip to the big business out there. (where the money is?)
Now, if this does come through and they do "merge" with AT&T it would be nice to bring in some of those resources and move them to good old Texas. Maybe San Antonio would see a huge benefit from such an acquisition.
