again, verizon's network (landline), cable(dsl) internet isnt even close to what the combined T would have and that is why i said it would be smart to go after the companies who will be spinning off their units or already have them such as qwest. (obviously under chapter 11. lol) alltel would be a very big buyout if that were to happen becuase they are a very good addition to verizon's wireless and wireline division. verizon will now need all the help it can get and if they control 100% of verizon wireless, and buy out alltel and its wireline division (that it will spin off) it would make them a good competitor, becuase if they dont, they would be in a world of trouble. why? well, becuase T would be a lot bigger, own 100% of cingular, combine networks, billing and other things, but more importantly is to bring together bundled services at a cheaper price against the rest of the pack including verizon. if you read my statement, i never said that verizon should buy out sprint, but i said that verizon should buy out sprint's embarq which is their wireline business that they are spinning off. sprint and a verizon merger would never happen or if it did there would be so many divestitures, more then cingular and attws which were pretty big, that the merger would be worth a lot less. there would be synergies but it wouldnt be worth it.
as i mentioned before wireline, is not doing that great and growth has been slowing across the industry, and wireless is obviously doing very well. that is the future. dsl, cable, fios and other internet solutions would do well in the future, but wireline wont.
true. that is a good point that verizon shouldnt worry about wireline, however, the wireline helps the wireless get calls done. the more wireline access lines you have, the better you would be, becuase the more things you can do wireless and wirelne.
remember cell phones have to get on the PSTN which the landline and wireline companies control and then go onto the MSTO which is carrier controlled. so the more the wireline and landine companies control the easier, cheaper and better the quality and transfer would be with the PSTN and MSTO.
PSTN= public switched telephone network
MST0= mobile telephone switching office
