Alltel To Buy Midwest Wireless
Replying to: more consolidation (thoughts) by nextel18
Cricket a better choice than T-Mo?
Wouldn't it make more sense, since Alltel wants to grow fast, for it to buy Cricket (Leap Wireless)? It's not a huge company, but it is still sizable with 1.6 million customers, and it uses the same tech (CDMA).
I don't think T-Mobile or Alltel wants each other anyway. It would be a collosal headache for both companies. Each company wants to grow fast but a merger won't work because neither has the money to acquire and integrate the other with any speed. Sprint & Nextel can work, because both companies could afford to wait years to spread out the cost of integration. Neither Alltel or T-Mobile can wait those years if they want to be a relevant national carrier.
