aka... buy T-Mobile U.S.
aka sell off verizon and fully own T-Mobile US. Makes perfect sense, Standard 1700/2100 Aws LTE compatibility, roaming agreements with AT&T. Selling off their VZW stake would give them cash for acquisitions (T- Mobile US) Cash for a T-Mobile expansion, and of course gives them a full entry into the U.S market along with current compatible technology, with a company that netted a nice sum of customers last quarter that now has the iPhone. This waiting game was merely a waiting game to see how the NO SUBSIDY model would work out for T-Mobile without making a bid to buy it prematurely.
