CEOs of AT&T and Time Warner on their $85B mega merger

They just revealed that the price for 100 channels over-the-top will cost $35/month including mobile charges.

 

When asked about regulatory scrutiny, Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T: "Vertical integration is rarely a means of changing prices. It does not change the structure of the market. Unlike horizontal integration, vertical integration mergers are historically approved. They are reviewed, but approved."

 

So, bottom line, when getting in bed together, it's hard to go horizontal. =)

 

"Net neutrality? OK Google, you won. It's done. The net neutrality bogeyman is gone."

 

"Reed Hastings was here last night. He said he was fine, as long as his content can get equal treatment"

 

"5G will bring gigabit data, starting in 2018 and scaling in 2019-2020."

 

"The guys at Zoox need 5G to get cars on the road by 2020."
