    Google Wireless....

    This is from May 21st 2014 in Fierce Wireless:

    The rumor: Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is exploring the possibility of becoming an MVNO, according to a report from The Information. The report, citing unnamed sources, said that over the past 12-15 months Google has approached both Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) and Sprint (NYSE: S) about using their networks for the service, which would be a "a full-fledged wireless service" in markets where the search giant offers Google Fiber Internet and TV service. However, it's unclear what, if any, headway Google has made in convincing the carriers to go for such a plan.

    Google Wireless....

    you might be right about that - "Google Wireless" would be the logical rationale behind Sprint providing 24/7 support for Google apps ......my guess would be a Google MVNO...

    I mean look at all trends to robots, Google glass, connected watches, connected homes, whatever other connected gizmos are on the drawing board......Google's big risk is that connected devices somehow pass by the need for using Google......

    ...........this is no doubt why Google created maps, not to mention Android......Google has to see a growing need to have some control over a network for all the wireless connectivity its getting involved in.....without of course actually going into the business of creating and running a wireless network...enter Sprint who can also do network/spectrum sharing.....

    It makes sense, we'll see....one has to look at the whole world going "wireless everything"...and how does someone like Google stay in front of that

    someone(s) just took all the available shares off the board at prices up to $7.73.....the after hours market of course trades with little liquidity and typically a wider bid/ask......these shares usually just sit there....someone just took them all...not huge, about 15000 shares, but it is unusual...

  • On its conference call today AT&T touted how their new wireless model is successfully selling larger and larger blocks of data, and that this is the driver of growth going forward - it came across as braggadocio. He also said that unlimited data plans are dead. These couple of comments in and of themselves should be viewed by the FCC and DOJ as clear evidence as to why a TMUS/Sprint merger is an absolute must.

    Sprint stock bashers don't like the idea of Sprint having a large scale Strategic partnership of some sort with Google.......but fact is given M. Son's comments regarding Sprint as an internet company and not a telecom, it only stands to reason that Son has a larger master plan moving into place......

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 6 hours ago Flag

    clearly there is a larger strategic plan in place

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 6 hours ago Flag

    good point whigg

  • greekmonster101 greekmonster101 7 hours ago Flag

    very interesting development, given that Sprint is going to provide support for these apps, it certainly sounds like this is one step in some larger strategic relationship.

    Sprint Price after TMobile offer?

    by sjfriedel 9 hours ago

    $14, initially offset by regulatory risk to the deal. I base this on looking at the synergies of the two companies and what the resulting company would look like. One can estimate it's eps etc. Basically, what is the new company worth. Also going into this estimation is a look at the 81% ownership by Son and what minimally has to happen to his ownership of the merged company, one assumes he ends with 51% or better. Toss in the numbers on what the rumored buyout price is and what DT ends with (a rumored range in media) and from all that you can come to some conclusions about what a current Sprint share must be worth.

    The real wild card of course is the structure of the deal. I do not necessarily believe anything I have read about the deal in the media. There's big uncertainties as to how this might be structured and at present the market has really removed all deal premium and then some from the price. My guess is that when this deal wraps, the media will be "surprised", who knew we could value Sprint in this way...go figure.

  • Fierce Wireless:

    "América Móvil does not have any plans to acquire a U.S. carrier, the company's management said during the carrier's second-quarter earnings call. The statement serves to squash speculation that América Móvil might purchase T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS) with the money it expects to raise through a sale of its assets.

    Meanwhile, TracFone Wireless, América Móvil's U.S. MVNO, reported that it barely had any subscriber growth in the second quarter.

    According to reports from the carrier's earnings call, América Móvil's management said that the company hasn't changed its U.S. strategy and isn't planning to purchase a U.S. carrier. The company's management said América Móvil is comfortable with how TracFone is working in the United States."

    I think this serves to show just how far the media will go in creating "news" out of whole cloth. Literally some idiot somewhere dreams up a story and bloggers pick it up and on an on, and it's just pure fantasy. It's also interesting that many outlets picked up the "Carlos Slim might buy T-Mobile" nonsense yet no one including the WSJ reporting on the American Movil conference call even mention the truth when American Movil killed the rumor. Of course not, in their twisted view American Movil just killed a perfectly good "story", how dare they. Good for Fierce Wireless in reporting facts.
