"A break out of what"
MCI/Worldcom got into price wars years ago and it took 'em to BK. Who knows how this will turn out for the Sprint paper tiger? Oh yeah, that's right, the king of double-down-clown-trading, Mr. iso_dumb knows the score.
So yeah, it's an FYI. Thanks, Sage...
Not quite as good as that freakin no show copy-and-paste ip address posted by Mr. emo himself…
Feelings….woh…..woh… who…..feelings. LOL!
break out of what
Is this an FYI or something of interest, or some of the above? How is their new CEO going to turn things around, with losses in the millions and arpu going down every month?
I guess you haven't learned the first rule of pumping a company. FTR sure hasn't.
You ever worked for either company, sage? If so, for how long? I'm just curious as to your comparison of working for one vs the other.
lets hope its a good thing....
How can it not be?
T no longer wanted this property, and FTR was willing to buy it. T-Conn workers should be very grateful that FTR wanted to buy them.
FTR doesn't have a dog in this fight. Should be interesting to watch.
Marcelo Claure is only one week into his new role as CEO of Sprint (S) and already he is promising some big changes, which could ignite a wireless price war and mean better deals for consumers.
In a company-wide town hall meeting yesterday, Claure reportedly said the company will introduce "very disruptive" prices next week. Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Aaron Task said this not just bluster from Claure, and we will probably see a price war break out in the next couple of weeks. “I think this is what Claure has done in the past and he believes in sort of the cheap phone market,” Task said.
Sprint’s parent company is Japan’s Softbank, and founder Masayoshi Son, who is the chairman of the company, is also a big supporter of the new CEO. Claure joined Sprint’s board in January. He was also the founder of mobile phone distributor Brightstart, which was acquired by Softbank last year. Son brought in Claure to replace Dan Hesse last week when Sprint announced it called off plans to takeover T-Mobile (TMUS) after facing huge resistance from regulators.

What happens if some state were to pass a reit, would they require FTR or any other teleco to bring the outside plant up to standards? Would they require FTR to give the REIT millions of dollars to come up to standards, like VZ had to for the FTR Deal?
Think about it, could the local cable company get access to the new REIT, does the REIT become public domain?"
How does a company that asked Public Service Commissions and Regulatory Agencies to stop or not give clearance to companies that wanted to put fiber rings in these LEC areas now seek approval to spin off their outside plant?
How does a LEC that kept CLEC's from access to their fiber networks ask for approval? Then you would have to ask under current rulings, will FTR, T, VZ, ect have to continue to subsidize the outside plant costs for a CLEC if a REIT for outside plant were allowed? Sure telecos, want to spin off the high cost of obsolete plant to a company just like banks spun off bad loans to a new bank that they created. How do they rewrite the rules?How does the FCC get guarantees for the protection of the network or even the DOD?
These phone companies cannot even keep Rachel from Credit card Services from making nuisance calls. All this will do if it ever occurs is create another level for the phone company to hide behind because of bad service, "it's the reits fault, it's the phone company's fault" . What happens if some state were to pass a reit, would they require FTR or any other teleco to bring the outside plant up to standards? Would they require FTR to give the REIT millions of dollars to come up to standards, like VZ had to for the FTR Deal?

"This stock is artificially high…"
What the….?!?! Bucky, you're artificially high.
Put down that gurgling bong of yours, squirt some Visine into your peepers and let your noggin clear.
If you are all a-twitter that the stock is doing well; then, you must be a short.
If you're a long and whining about good share-price news; then you're just a primo lummox!
CEO MAGGIE too involved with T acquisition. Again Maggie is buying AT&T left over garbage. Just like when she bought VZ old antiquated phone lines, and stock took a beating. This stock is artificially high due acquisition hype. WHEN WILL PEOPLE LEARN???
