  • Why is AT&T trying to buy Time Warner?
    “…Simply put, AT&T is having a hard time retaining customers…They’re in a pricing war with Verizon; cellphone bills keep going down, which is great for us, but not great for the companies.

They’ll marry AT&T’s data with Time Warner’s content and sell ads at a higher rate.”
