Promises, promises, promises..... first you weren't going to post for the summer because you had so many things to do. Then you supposedly put me on ignore. Just another one of your many lies.
Yes, [extreme sarcasm here] I created a Nige alias on the interactive investor forum in 2002 and my Smalls alias in 2009 so that the two IDs could compliment each other a good handful of years later. All this coming from an ignorant klown using an endless number of aliases and you state the use of multiple IDs is pathetic. Good klown act today. I'm laughing.
So you will have fiber support costs replacing a portion of the copper plant. Sure, their is savings......New competition knocking at the ISP and pay TV bundler door as Title II comes into play. Small cells with fiber trunks not that far off. The cost to become a local ISP got a whole lot cheaper and an open playing field erupted when the FCC kicked the door open for a 100 MHz band for general authorized use. As new small cell tech hits the market backed by Title II opening the door for the completion, the small players will have the necessary spectrum to deploy competing (very) high speed internet, TV bundle, and VOIP. Fiber plant will be relegated to trunk and mostly between urban centers. Within urban centers it appears the design is headed towards small cells being used to create a mesh network backhaul to a point where fiber then takes data towards the data centers and interconnects. FCC set up such a big band that it sure allow for at least 5 strong local ISPs using the band before additional spectrum is needed. ....and as technology progresses and efficiencies increase, the general authorized band may come to handle more.
In the end, your cost structures may be changing with technology but so is the competitive field and your pricing power as the monopolistic Telco and Cable Cartel gets the market moat kicked off its hinges by the FCC. What the cartel has enjoyed as a monopolistic market position is changing as well.
Which ID was going to the beach today, which is playing with the supposed girlfriend and which ID has more than a pittance of dividend hitting their account? What a klown act all around.
A few more days of this and you might get your buy trigger pulled.
Off to the beach means you are finally getting out of bed to take a shower while you collect unemployment. We already know you lie about vacations and girlfriends. How many klown act IDs are you up to now Klown? Just curious how bad your MPD is getting.
I find it entertaining in your response you don't dispute being a lonesome loser but instead try to claim I'm some person using a similar moniker on one of your dating websites. You trying to play the card that I'm a lonesome loser too is quite a laugh. I'm not single like yourself as we have previously covered. You've previously attacked me and the fact that I am married and have offspring. As bad as your klown game of trying to bounce back and forth with Nige and I being the same person and sometimes not. Good reason you struggle with keeping a woman for the long term....
Nobody is going to touch this hot potato. They will make bull [manure] claims but when it comes to actuals there is a different story. Kind of like AT&T's 2014 projections vs. actual performance as well as the large increase in claimed synergies from DTV acquisition.
VOD has been needing to close a big gap up from months ago. I believe Nige has posted a couple times he is waiting with a fist of cash to buy at the gap close. Nige, you have to be salivating watching the recent downtrend, hoping to get back in full force.
LOL. I'm doing just fine as you don't seem to account for the VZ Wireless transaction. "killing it with dividends"? LOL T has been dead money.
Apparently I hit the mark with the reality vs. virtual girlfriend and cruises....and dividend size too.
Nothing? This mb little more use than a lonesome loser providing us quality entertainment. The klown theme song as presented by the Little River Band.
LOL. Not what the reports that were coming out at the end of May with nothing really heard of since that time.
Read: AT&T, DirecTV push back against merger conditions, as FCC shot clock remains stopped.
The most laughable part is T's response that "the record demonstrates that the merger is pro-competitive...." I have yet to see where the elimination of many consumers having their choices reduced which vaults concentration past acceptable benchmark concentration levels is good for consumers. FCC should just tell them to fly a kite on concentration concerns until Title II is upheld in the litigation fight which will be the basis of new competition having the ability to fill the void left by AT&T buying DTV. FCC should say, 'come back in a couple years after we kick your [rear posterior] in the pending court fight. If, for some unkown reason FCC loses Title II, AT&T and DTV will have concentrated pay TV in overlapping markets without remedy for such new competition to adequately fill the void. Now, klown, show me some media hype to back your current claim the deal will be approved with "NO" contingencies.
The dividend truck is as real as your girlfriend and the cruise you recently took.
Still single headed into the late 40s. A true klown and a lonesome loser.
Stinky butt, Go read the VOD message board. We address each other often. This T message board comment direction is centered on the klown act entertainment being provided.
Here goes the wild goose chase. Klown has repeatedly asked me to meet him on the coast while making fun of housing in the U.K./Europe. My smalls ID was created well before May of 2013. Nige has been posting on Interactive Investors well before then but did join Yahoo Finance after I began posting on a relatively quite VOD message board. My ID much older than 2013 and Nige's ID on iii is much older than 2013. You know better but want to start the same trash. Keep it up klown. You're dividends are as real as the supposed cruise you took earlier this week.....and that blow up doll for a girlfriend.
Yes Nige, I believe it was Stephenson who stated such. Latin America growth???....most of the growth is already over. Klowns ignore the penetration figures and economics. Pay TV penetration knocking on 60% in all of latin America (some countries rivaling U.S. penetration) while the U.S. is considered fully penetrated bouncing against 84% and starting to see cord cutting. The limited amount of analyst coverage concerning pay TV in Latin America both predict modest growth in satellite TV (more or less treading water), cable shrinking, and the big gains in subscriber counts being had by streaming. Boils down to satellite losing head count in urbanized areas but treading water overall with gains in rural market.
If the klowns think there is going to be some overnight miracle gain in mobile phone market in Latin America then they have another thing coming. Ask Masayoshi Son how buying a distant third place network operator in need of major infrastructure investment has worked out for him so far. AT&T, already cash strapped cash flow barely making dividend cover, is buying an AOL rerun in DTV will have fodder to play earnings games but FCF/dividend cover spells out T not having the financial horsepower to make the serious investment to even attempt a run at AMX or TEF. Stephenson indeed in a whiff of desperation as his stock buyback program has produced dead end share price movement with money that could have been used to build a better network to compete with VZ.
