Dobson Considers Sale, Too

Dobson Communications, the largest remaining carrier using the Cellular One name, is considering selling its network. The firm has reportedly hired Morgan Stanley to explore the possibility, however this does not guarantee the company is up for sale. Alltel, another large regional carrier which purchased fellow Cellular One licensee Western Wireless, was recently sold to a team of private equity partners. Dobson could follow suit or angle for a sale to Tier 1 GSM carriers AT&T or T-Mobile.

T-mobile Shoud buy Dobson
If you talk to insiders, this is one of the biggest reasons why Cingular bought AT&T Wireless and why Sprint bought Nextel (for the 2500mhz licenses that will become used for wimax)
