Verizon Asks Vodafone To Sell Back Stake
What will this mean for Verizon?
1. if verizon were to buy out vodafone's stake they would obviously have to make up for the hefty $50+B price tag which means probably that customers would have to pay more for their services to make up.
2 however, on the other hand, since there might be some synergies, al though not a lot, one can think to try to under cut the new T merger, they would try to under price against them, but i dont think they have a shot at that.
so; so its difficult to tell whether or not the prices will go up or down becuase as mentioned before they need to spend a fortune for vodafone's stake and number 2 T is a lot better then verizon and to undercut them might be impossible with T's network.
its too difficult so...
SBC bought out AT&T which later changed their name to AT&T, instead of SBC. then AT&T (formely known as SBC) bought out BellSouth.. the name will stay AT&T.
thus; T, SBC and BellSouth are one company.

"BREAKING! - AT&T to buy BellSouth for $67 billion. AT&T will soon be the big Ma Bell it once used to be. Ah yes, the glory days of a monopolistic telecom industry. The "Cingular" brand will also be phased out as part of this deal (in favor ...
Since the other post did not answer your question:
Short n simple- "T" is the stock market symbol for AT&T!!!
Less is sometimes more!
i threw something huge out there by saying why not have verizon buy the whole vodafone company.. i already explained my reasoning in my past posts as well as their combined assets. i think it would be worth it becuase they would be such a strong global company with hands in every market.
i think after verizon takes care of this little problem with either buying out vodafone's stake or even buying out vodafone as a whole, which is only $100B more which isnt too bad, then i think verizon should focus on a few providers in united states. they are, alltel, qwest (when it goes chapter 11), sprint's embarq and others and then focus on the north and south of the united states and buy some other companies to expand their footprint e...

--NORTH AMERICAN PLAN!
I can tell you any pp for any carrier... it's what I do mmmmmmmmmkaY.
you were hinting that verizon wireless should go after telus right?
i also think it would be cool buying telus and buying a latin america company.. i mean this market is becoming saturated so companies must do something to expand whether its globally or domestically but north or south of the boarder...
it would be cool
i understood what he was talking about, perhaps it is just best to be calm and ask what he meant instead of going irate.
In order for the purchase to allow Verizon Communications to go global, Verizon can't just buy Voda's stake in VZW, Verizon Communications would have to buy out Voda itself! Lol!
it makes most sense.
that was a fake bid, and we see them all the time and they mean nothing.
VC's have always been interested in buying companies and they usually do, but for vodafone, it wont happen. many VC firms, especially combined, have $5B in equity, but it is too risky to get into vodafone right now..
but, a company like verizon, would be a great play for vodafone as previously explained. 1. gives them $80+B in assets (network and spectrum), a global footprint, one of the best worldwide brand name and company in vodafone, and ...
