Sprint selling iDen network in iPCS territory - anyone heard anything?
Three qualified wireless companies that come to mind are SouthernLinc, Nextel International, and Telus Mike of Canada.
In addition, I'd bet that a handful of venture capital firms would consider buying the assets, because Sprint is likely to let the iDEN assets go for a cheap price just to meet the court-imposed deadline.
It's not like Sprint can hold out for the best price, similar to a divorced couple willing to sell their house for a lot less than they COULD get for it, because they just want to get rid of it quickly and move on with their lives.
I wouldn't sweat it if I was you. I'd keep my eyes open for anot...
Sprint Nextel to Acquire Wireless Affiliate iPCS, Inc.
"...As a result, Sprint will no longer be required to divest its iDEN network in certain iPCS territories and will terminate its previously announced divestiture process pending closing of the transaction."
