I'm still on the fence about updating my 5S to iOS11... I really like 10.3.3 on it and by far my favorite thus far since I got it early last year.
I don't know? Should I download now or wait? Is iOS11 really worth it?
For me...I believe unlimited and prices are the most at risk for a merger. They will likely make promises to regulators not to scrap unlimited or raise price for one year. They won't offer it initially when presenting for approval. But it will be one of the things they offer early to help anti-trust issues. And if they get desperate, they'll offer more than a year.
I don't think prices will double overnight, or anything. But Tmo cancelled unlimited before. And it was only Sprint who held firm. Not that Sprint is some holy protector of unlimited. They did it only to differentiate and try to compete. In a Triopoly world, if the new Tmo drops unlimited again, AT&T and VZW would follow suit quickly. They can't wait to go back. It will only be a mere Legere business decision to end unlimited in the USA. Maybe forever.
I personally don't use much data anymore. It's not a big deal to me, all things considered. I like unlimited data because I hate constantly keeping track, and having to constantly meter my behavior over a remaining period. I hate that.
