Illiad gives up bid for T-Mobile US

Re/Code :

French carrier Iliad said Monday it is giving up on plans to acquire T-Mobile US, following discussions with majority owner Deutsche Telekom and the T-Mobile US board.

It’s not really a surprise, if you look at the size of Illiad, and the will of it’s main shareholder, Xavier Niel, to not run into a huge debt. But it’s not a good news for U.S. citizens, if you look at the mobile subscriptions prices and all the Comcast bulls**t. Thanks to Free (the name of Illiad’s ISP and mobile carrier), who shoke the French market 2 years ago, I pay only 25€ (30 $US) for unlimited voice and text, 5GB of LTE and with no engagement. How much Verizon/AT&T charges for this?
