You are on a ship you don't want to be on and will only jump after a failed merger? Why not just jump now, or a long time ago?
I jumped ship myself recently, but not because of the merger. I had a great post-paid plan but it still sucks paying $102.53/mo for two lines for essentially internet where combined less than 12GB/mo are consumed. Moved to save money. Now have 3 lines, pay for Hulu and still save $67/mo.
