Leap Wireless has formed a joint venture that will allow the fixed price carrier to expand into Oregon. Leap will work together with CSM Wireless and WLPCS Management to launch Cricket service in Oregon. Leap sold two of its Ohio licenses to fixed price carrier Revol in exchange for $28.5 million, most of which was put into the Oregon joint venture. Between the cash and licenses for Salem and Eugene, Leap will own 73% of the joint venture. CMS will contribute its license for Portland. Together the joint venture can provide service to about 50% of Oregon's population. There is no word when cricket will launch there yet.

Make way...

...for the little "all you can talk" carriers that everybody thought would have bought it by now. It seems as if these carriers (Metro, Cricket, etc...) are making enough money to buy lucrative licenses in major markets. Good for them. This'll continue to keep the big boys on their toes.
pfft.......the big boys will use the guppies as a stepping stone.

the only little guy making it is altell.

suncom has a chance but they dont know what they are doing. they need to revamp their higher office.
This is the stupidest news article ever. LEAP has been doing business in Oregon for several years as Cricket. Salem was the first city, I believe, and thru roaming agreements, was able to use Verizon or Sprint outside of the Unlimited calling area, NA...

Am I missing something???

I've had Cricket in Oregon for about four or five years now. Seem to me they have already launched here.
