I chuckled when I first heard of AT&T's plan to buy T-Mobile. Just days before, I had written that AT&T's movement toward phasing out unlimited data plans for the iPhone and its broadband Internet offerings was a sign that the telecommunications services that have become such an integral part of our daily lives were about to get a lot more expensive. When I wrote that, literally one week ago, I assumed it would take a while -- maybe a year or three -- before the entire industry turned to metered plans and started forcing us to make hard choices about how we consume data.

This was doomed . . .

We'll know soon.
