Verizon Will Lose Customers
Verizons on the verge of losing a whole lotta money with this unless they get a little more loyal to the customers. Now if the merger was the other way around then yea, they would have the offerings that appeal to customers.
That 80 million will drop to about 77-78 million and i see regional carriers and maybe tmobile added more to their belt. Maybe Sprint also(Maybe) ha
I always considered the "my circle" deal a little too frustrating anyway. better to expand the circle to include far...
can we buy alltel phones and activate them on verizon now?
Yay for monopolies.
what exactly does it mean?
markets are kinda like counties/parishes(louisiana) or towns/cities.
Good God, you can make a whole new carrier with those divestitures
