AT&T unhappy with T-Mobile’s attempts at clarifying roaming rates

In a blog posted yesterday evening, John Marsh from AT&T outlines the company’s opposition to T-Mobile’s attempt at changing roaming regulation. And that’s not surprising. No matter which party is right or wrong, AT&T seemingly always opposes every change the Un-carrier tries to make.
