Pay a premium to what? VZ is not going to tell an analyst what their best bid is! $100B is a lowball leak by bankers trying to get a deal done and earn a fee. VOD is mum, but someone else leaks they''d like $130B. If a VZW deal gets done, there's a decent chance it'll be in this range. If VOD sells it all, then who knows what VZ, with or without a partner, may bid. This hyped big complex deal is still unlikely in my view, but obviously there are a lot of interested parties that want it to happen.
