No problem. You know me and how I like to discuss matters. I love to provide excess data and information so at least many people can actually give a rational thought instead of saying something very bogus. Like when you showed me data and information it is very helpful. I think these forums need to have more people like that in order to at least have civil dialogues. With facts you can’t dispute it and that is why you and others (myself included) use it to their advantage.

Yea, Verizon likes to cut checks without really thinking of what they are doing while companies like T-mobile and others need to think closely and careful of how they are spending dollars. Verizon’s MHz per pop is very high while T-mobile’s is very low. You can see how they vary by strategic purchases and just writing blank checks.

You can also see that Verizon likes to go into anything and if they have a backfire like that mistake you mentioned, it won’t hurt them, but to a company like T-mobile it will. Both very interesting business models and strategies but usually the company with the least costs should win out eventually. That is why I like T-mobile and dislike Verizon. I won’t complain, however, of Verizon’s cash flows and its generous gifts to us investors in payments of dividends and share buy backs.
