Cellular South Makes Bigger 3G Push into Mississippi
Today Cellular South announced a dramatic expansion of its 3G coverage across the state of Mississippi. Cellular South will bring 3G service to 78 more cities across 26 Mississippi counties during the second and third quarters of 2009. With this expansion, Cellular South will cover two-thirds of Mississippians with 3G, and 29 of the state's 30 largest cities. Cellular South, which is a privately owned company, uses CMDA-based EVDO for its 3G network.
Cellular South + Divested Alltel/VZW + US Cellular ??
Why shouldn't a buyout, merger or third party aquisition happen?
I think it would provide a a step closer to creating a more competitive capalistic market due to the large gap that is being created by vzw/att over the rest.
It would not place them in the same league customer wise but it would expand their native markets and able them to provide a more national footprint.
A finacial advantage would be realized with reduced roaming cost and a postential stratgical possition with other carriers like (metro and cricket) to stop exclusivities and require 3g/4g roaming.
CS is a family business (a very successful one), and...
