Comments on news posted 2012-11-30 14:19:35: Guggenheim Securities analyst Shing Yin single handedly made MetroPCS shares rise today by insisting that Sprint could make a bid of $12 to $13 per share for MetroPCS sometime within the next four weeks. ..
Who knows if true, but Mr Son of Softbank is aggressive
Who knows if there is any truth in this rumor. But Mr Son of Softbank, Sprint's not-yet-approved buyer, has very aggressive plans for Sprint and it is possible he may reverse the old Sprint boards attitude to buying MetroPCS. Of course, this all depends on DOJ & FCC approving a foreign buyer taking over Sprint. -- A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.

Good friend or not, the DOJ and the FCC still have foreign ownership laws that have to be followed.

if this happens, will this hurt TMO's LTE deployment schedule ? im patiently waiting for LTE to go live before i root my device. -- Suffolk County NY Police Feed - »www.scpdny.com PS3 Gaming Feed - »www.livestream.com/elitedata
It might hurt the schedule a little, but if Sprint buys MetroPCS then look for a quick offer to T-Mobile to buy MetroPCS's AWS spectrum holdings. Sprint might actually be able to turn MetroPCS's network down and refarm AWS more quickly than T-Mobile could, since pushing MetroPCS users to Sprint is as simple as a PRL update.

Sprint + MetroPCS makes sense
Sprint buying Metro makes WAY more sense, to me, than does T-Mobile. Spring and Metro will have overlapping coverage, but the transition for customers won't be NEARLY as difficult, in my opinion since both are CDMA. -- My Music blog: »www.zunetracks.net
In fact as well as in opinion. Sprint could shut down MetroPCS's network overnight and MetroPCS's users would still have 3G service (which might actually be an upgrade in some markets for some phones). LTE would be slightly more difficult since Sprint would need to add an LTE carrier in the PCS non-G band (MetroPCS phones only support LTE in PCS A-F), but they were going to do that anyway at some point so it's not a big deal.
