Interesting graphic from WashPo/Bloomberg today showing the carrier mergers and the US population covered:

What I found most interesting is that we passed 300 million total carrier subscriptions last year according to the graphic above…without considering the smaller carriers.  That’s one for every man, woman and child in the US (clearly some have none and some have more than one).

Also interesting is that Democrats and Republicans (who together have a duopoly on American politics) have to consider whether three major carriers in the US is healthy.  Ugh, we’re screwed.
