Doesn't Comcast already compete with small telcos?
In the Comcast footprint one of the big sellers has been their VOIP phone product. So, anywhere that Comcast and these small landline telcos have coverage in the same areas, Comcast is already beating their brains in. How will a deal with Verizon Wireless make any appreciable difference?
yes they do. But if the Gov't does't let Cellco buy this spectrum the only thing that the MSOs have to do is lease it to them. And still create partnership. The gov't can NOT tell them who they can and can not partner with.
