Replying to: Re: Alltell is growing by justpeachy
from what i understand it seemed for awile verizon was thinking of buying sprint, they both have alot in common, would be a very easy merge, would really speed up the EVDO launch, and both carriers are sold by radio shack. The things holding them back was sprints lower credit standard, there debt, and there lower customer satisfaction level. The deal between sprint and nextel is like a combination of equals, so both companies shareholders get shares of the new company, at nearly equal rates. There is a clause in the deal kinda like a 'early termination fee' of 4 million bucks, if eather side decides to leave the combo, so there is still a chance of verizon buying sprint, however unlikley. With all the compition facing verizon, i.e. the new cingular - sprint nextel, Verizon is looking for help, i think there is a very very good chance verizon will look to alltell to continue being competitive.
