Damn You EU!!

The European commission has blocked Three’s £10.25bn takeover of O2 on competition grounds, saying the takeover would probably increase prices and reduce choice for consumers.
It would have given Three over 40% of UK mobile phone users with in excess of 30 million customers and reduced the number of network owners from four to three.
The EU Commission explained: 'Our investigation revealed significant competition concerns with this deal. It would very likely have led to higher prices and less choice for UK consumers' which has seen the Brexit crowd stepping in to condemn EU meddling.
They of course have a point, the bloody EU. Protecting our consumer rights, looking after our best interests and encouraging competition to keep prices down. Who the hell do they think they are??
Boo hiss@EU etc etc!

Mobil provider?

Yes, wouldn't you replace that nasty capitalist service with a socialist version managed by the government...

Depends if it is faster, cheaper and what the coverage is like.

There you go. The government is famous for great service, quality, and efficiency. See how well it works in Cuba, Russia, China, and North Korea!!

I don't know of any Governments that run a mobile service so cant comment on service, quality or efficiency but if you say Cuba, Russia, China and North Korea do then i will check out their rates and coverage.

Yes and all the other services that their governments run better than the private sector. Did I mention Venezuela? You know, nation with the largest crude oil reserves in the world that is on the verge of economic collapse? I'm sure their problems have nothing to do with their socialist policies < bah ha ha ha >. They must have a great mobile service...

I looked it up and Venezuela don't have a great mobile service but they are investing in it. In short, avoid Venezuelan mobile companies. Chinas is great though by all accounts.
