AT&T plays Game of Thrones: Every bit as ruthless as HBO version

•, By Faultline
There is that great promotional line in the first season of Game of Thrones which goes, "In the game of thrones, you either win or you die." Well, it applies just as much to the Game of the ever-converging, ever-thrilling US telecommunications and network market.

With the news this week leaking out that Softbank has more or less agreed the purchase of T-Mobile, not only will the US mobile market be going through dramatic changes, but the entire shape of the digital communications landscape will change, taking in fixed cable and telcos, ISPs and potentially broadcasters and studios.

The drift is towards the converged operator – a large national player that has a wireless network, a fixed network, a national footprint for both large and small video services (4K and portable) and which has a secondary wireless network in Wi-Fi, as well as one that has sufficient scale to acquire both original TV content and sports rights. The race is on to become the first to achieve all of this.
