    What is Clearwire's Spectrum Worth??

    "The deal makes life harder for every other carrier looking for spectrum, however. SpectrumCo — the joint venture between Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Bright House — was one of the last remaining large holders of U.S. spectrum. Since SpectrumCo is giving its entire cache of spectrum licenses (122 in total) to Verizon in an exclusive capacity, the transaction eliminates a seller from the marketplace.

    That shift will benefit two companies: wireless broadband provider Clearwire and satellite TV provider Dish Network. As Credit Suisse analyst Jonathan Chaplin puts it, Clearwire and Dish control the only major blocks of fallow spectrum left in the U.S. That is particularly true if AT&T’s proposed acquisition of T-Mobile USA falls through".

      VZ knew it couldn't get away with buying clwr that cheaply (bidding war)
      so they took advantage of the of all eyes on clwr saga distraction to secure a low profile spectrum asset, before the spectrum spotlight placed it on center stag (they basically blindsided T, and all the others)

      Since everyone was caught watching the paint dry and sleeping on the job.

      (Disastrously/tragic display of lack of strategic vision/competence and leadership by key industry CEOS')

      They now are stunned and will have to shake it off and get in the game immediately to secure their spectrum futures, lest they be at competitive advantage.

      Key Concept takeaway:
      Clearwire/Sprint value (strategic and asset wise) is now paramount
