Perfect Opportunity

Should Verizon buy their shares, Vodafone could finally invest strongly into a GSM presence in the US like they have wanted to. This would definitely open up the floodgates for technology to enter the US for GSM. I would love it if some SK companies would come over here too and increase the CDMA evolution.

I have heard rumors of Vodafone wanting to buy T-Mobile USA and re-branding it to Vodafone in the US. THAT would be pretty cool.

Deutsche Telekom has already said that they do not wish to sell T-Mobile USA at all and that they are in fact planning an investment of over 6 billion dollars into TM USA this year. As far as regional GSM carriers, the only one worth mentioning is Cellular One with Dobson Communications and they aren't big enough to matter. Cingular has just merged with the only viable way for any major company to buy their way into the American market in GSM.

Vodafone may be forced to buy a million tiny GSM companies......or even worse, have to build their own infrastructure.

I don't see anything wrong with Vodafone buying out all the tiny carriers. That's how Cingular and Verizon got started afterall.

Yeah, I mean the best way to beat the competition is by buying them out. Who cares about better service and pleasing the customer? If you've got money and the little guys don't, their loss not yours right? If someone were to actually provide a better service instead of taking over a company maybe we'd all be a little happier with our wireless service.

If Voda were to get €16 billion for their share in VZW, on top of their additional cash reserves, DT will sell T-Mo if the price is right. I've worked in real estate all my life and the first thing I've learned is that everything is for sale, its just a matter of reaching the "magic" price.

Also, why the sudden turn to buy the shares from Voda anyway? What changed, what has happened. There maybe more to this that we are hearing... For all we know Voda may have another party that is interested in buying its share... a party that Verizon doesn't what to do business with.

I think this is a difficult decision on the part of the combined parties because when they are combined they have a lot of capital and money to infuse into Verizon wireless, however, when they are separate especially if Verizon just owns Verizon wireless then they could have some troubles especially because of their debt burden but if Vodafone were to take a GSM or another carrier I think Verizon and some of the other carriers would be in deep trouble.

If they want GSM they should either by T-mobile or Cingular, and if they want CDMA which they could they should by Sprint.
