BT Latest Candidate In Possible Sprint Buyout

Rumors on Wall Street today suggested British Telecom (BT) is considering a purchase of Sprint. Though the rumors have helped Sprint's stock price, most analysts do not believe BT is likely to buy the carrier. BT no longer owns a mobile carrier, having sold O2 to Telefonica recently, leaving the British wireline provider few obvious reasons to invest in an American carrier. However both are members of the WiMax Spectrum Owners Alliance and have a strong interest in the technology. Previous rumors that placed SK Telecom as a front runner to buy out Sprint have been denied by the Korean carrier.

Very good assets are a big reason of why companies and PE want this company. Forsee is the main reason why Sprint is failing.

I honestly don't see Sprint being bought out by anyone here in the near future. Maybe sometime down the line, but NOPE, not anytime soon!!

Please let BT buys us out

I hope the UK does buys us out, maybe they will treat there employees better. Maybe better pay and better customer service, who knows. All I know, that cooperate guys sure make there money and what do the employees see, crap. Can you believe this; Sprint took $500.00 from all there employee’s commission check. Hey someone has to pay for Payton Manning’s commercial, I guess take it from there employees.
your a liar!!!

CDMA in the U.K.?

With BT possibly buying Sprint, what are the chances that BT launches a CDMA network in the U.K.? While both are interested in WiMAX in the long term, perhaps a preliminary CDMA network can allow for some roaming options with Sprint in the U.S. assuming the merger goes through. Perhaps the Sprint name can be used in the U.K. as well.
It could happen especially with the use of Qchat. They are more interested in Wimax with Sprint though.
