Forming partnerships and spectrum-sharing opportunities are on the table, however no large cash acquisitions are in the works.  That seems like an obvious non-denial denial to the almost constant whisper that T-Mobile and Sprint are … [read full article]

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse Thinks A Merger With T-Mobile Makes Sense, In Other News, The Sky Is Blue

Update: Thanks to a sharp reader I did indeed incorrectly source the Wall Street 24/7 article which states companies that WILL disappear in 2011 when the Yahoo News article erroneously states companies that MAY disappear, guess I should pay more attention too. Doesn’t change the fact that it doesn’t say the company itself will disappear, just the brand so T-Mobile may live on according to them only under a different name and perhaps … [read full article]

The Merger Rumor Game Continues, This Time Without Sprint

I must preface this and say by now, these rumors are starting to get old and frustrating. The wireless industry, which has of late seen more than its share of mergers and acquisitions, is again seeing T-Mobile take center stage in this, the latest round of merger talk.
