Makes me wonder with his new collateral values if he won't leverage up the new wealth though. He did predict they would become the largest revene/profit/market cap up there with the likes of Exxon etc. Still wondering about the comment by the SFTBY management insider about not being surprised if they took a shot at buying VOD. I'm long VOD but always said the odds were very low of Masayoshi Son taking a crack. That was the case until they walked from TMUS and the BABA IPO estimates (and now actual trade) were rolled out. Not sure now and I give it as much odds as much as any other major telecom taking a crack at VOD. Looking at respective market caps relative to VOD's global subscriber base and exposure to rapidly expanding organic/emerging markets it is quite easy to realize deep value.
I could have hung in my college days and still consume regularly but that is a funny fact. Every single chap getting blitzed once a week! Know that is an average and many have a pint at the dinner table. If that only places them eighth then who is the drunkest and those figures?
The Queen is likely happy today BUT what in the world is up with the £ trade today? Not what many pieces in the media were assuming for GBP move with a resulting 'no' vote.
Coming from a company that was mired in huge antitrust lawsuits at one time I wouldn't exactly call that a great endorsement. Like a judge getting a letter from Charles Manson that a new murder case should found not guilty and no parole. LOL
Sure buddy. Your posts were so pertinent and trashy you erased them all. What a joke.
AT&T employee aren't you? As far back as five years there is a trail of AT&T urging employees to fight net neutrality.
Something that really had to chap your backside:
Senate Democrats propose bill that would force FCC to enforce net neutrality
countered by an attempt to soften the public outcry of throttling:
AT&T’s fascinating third-way proposal on net neutrality
Kind of a nice try.... Get ready boys. It happened in EU and it is eventually going to happen here.
Coming from an ID born 4 days ago created because all your other IDs have been kicked in the nose. This is quite laughable. You couldn't even comprehend VZ hadn't bought VOD even after I informed you otherwise a couple times over. Ignorant fool.
HUGE profit? LOL Good luck kafkaclown. Your premise has been dividends in the long term but now your stating you will be long gone.
Far from it little one.
Keep sticking your head in the sand. You must really enjoy it that way just like you enjoyed it when Stephenson burned $4B in spectrum and $2B in cash to the ground in his bad TMUS move.
You have bigger problems as Pigliosi has proposed classifying internet as a utlility.
That battle just getting rolling...
LOL Really? First, that post you quoted was not fully informed as G.fast standards already approved. May 2, 2014 confirmed by media that standards were finalized in April. There will be a very minor amount of parasite power to the homeowner of something less than $5/yr. Small change and hardly worth mentioning as it is less than most appliances including the TV. ITU ALREADY completed the standards as of early April, well ahead of EOY 2014, which has in turn moved some deployment estimates from 2016 forward to 2016.
Fiber is already at about 1,500' average from homes for Comcast if I recall correctly (don't quote me) and I believe AT&T is quoted as average of 2,000-3,000' or 600-900m. Running a single line into a back alley and spliced into copper using G.fast technology is a much cheaper proposition than full fiber.
You're far from shutting down G.fast. It is coming whether you want to ignore it or not. Dig up streets for a single line into back alleys is 20% of the cost of full fiber. A DSLAM or node every few floors depending on width and height of the building. Ever stop to think 100m might be up 60m and out 40m? The bulk of satellite TV exposure isn't concentrated apartment risers but the burbs where a typical city block is at most 200 m wide to the center of the street. Considering most all have alleys we are talking 100m from the alley to the center of the street in front of the home. My back alley line ties in at less then 50m.
Now you will run the garbage line about fiber into rural. Well, even for satellite TV the subscriber numbers aren't there. Suburban and small towns.
Blessing in disguise and the ID spoofer doesn't realize it. Maybe Stephenson will be blocked from making the $6B TMUS blunder look like a dime on the dollar when compared to a $68B DTV blunder.
LOL You know better since you have went through my old posts.
TV package will be a different beast smarty pants. Do you think VZ is going to offer mobile TV streams and then charge a customer for passing a 2 gb monthly data cap? LOL Get real. The playing field for piped TV bundles is getting bulldozed by IP both over LTE and fixed line. Satellite TV left in the cold.
Pertinent? LOL Is Google TV, Apple TV, VZ FiOS or T's U-verse TV hitting people with overages for watching streaming TV on their IP TV packages? Nope. Your premise is garbage. Comical.
Chortle with a chuckle. You just don't get it. If you are in DTV shareholder then sell your shares as this is still a good window to get out while the T bid supports share price. If you are in T shares then it is for the best as your poor visionary leader is blocked from buying a burning business model.
It isn't a doomsday per se but a doomstrend. AOL wasn't overnight but within a couple years the signs were already emerging Time Warner had a bed mate with a really nasty virus that made the sick for a good number of years.
