AT&T and BellSouth: Is bigger going to be better?

Ken Belson’s interesting article in today’s New York Times asks a good question:

"Is bigger necessarily better when it comes to running a telecommunications company?"

He’s analyzing the just announced AT&T (which used to be SBC which used to be Southwestern Bell which used to be AT&T) offer to buy BellSouth. Belson looks hard at how questionable the payoff from this deal really is. His headline suggests AT&T’s goal is to become all things to all customers. Sounds familiar.
