I see it as AT&T having sour grapes about Sprint's efforts to block the T-Mobile merger...but, I don't think AT&T has as valid a case here. After all, isn't T-Mobile USA majority controlled by a company that's based in Europe? And Verizon is controlled by Vodafone, right?
I see that as a case of reverse psychology. They are basically letting everyone know that if the deal goes through that the FCC can't really stop AT&T on their next venture.

as for the names and all joking aside, if Softbank does indeed go through with their ambitious plan of overtaking the world telecoms and acquires Sprint, T-Mobile, Clearwire, Metro-PCS, US Cellular, Leap Wireless. I see them going even further and getting Globalstar (largest provider of mobile satellite voice and data services), InterDigital (extensive patent technology) etc among others.

With having so many a true global name might come into play...
Global Wire
Global Mobile
Sontel Wireless

But Spank still sounds better lol
