Surely not.

I'll bet that it'll be called something pronouncable that looks like someone's pulled a set of random letters out of the scrabble bag, after chucking in four extra sets' worth of Qs, Us, Xs and Zs.

It'll also have a logo. Probably something that looks like an artist's impression of vomit going down a plughole rendered in pastels. We will be reliably informed that this actually invokes a sense of "synergy and communication" or somesuch and not the aftertaste of five pints of Kingfisher and a dodgy prawn vindaloo as everyone thinks it does.

Hmm, is that sandalwood or patchouli I smell and could you turn the sodding whales down please?

I agree that the spectrum is an issue that needs to be looked at, however, this IMO is the only area of concern - any other objections to the merger are themselves anti-competative actions on the part of the other operators.

I do, however, also believe that a merged T-Mobile & Orange should be required to improve coverage rather than squeezing every penny out of the consolidation exercise.

T-Orange?

No it's not going to be called T-Orange thats just a daft name.

Thus creating an ORABILE Network !!!!

T-mOrange?

Say it how it looks

or Orange T... Which I'm told tastes horrible.

It'll all just become first Orange, then eventually Wanadoo as the deal is finally closed - because those Frogs will go to almost any lengths to piss us off (PS I love France xx)

Paris, because... Well, France.
