Re: Okay, NOW Wind will definitely be foreign owned

said by MaynardKrebs:

If Wind sticks around and they nab a large chunk of the reserved for newbie's 700MHz spectrum cheaply, I can see them @ 3MM+ subscribers in 4-5 years.

Yup, 700Mhz Spectrum + Next iPhone, more spectrum efficiency they'll make a killing.

I think Sawiris/Orascom/Vipelcom are bluffing when they're stating they intend to leave the market, it does two things:

1) It forces the government to offer them concessions to keep them in the market,

2) It encourages the worse type of behavior from the incumbents because they think the competiton ain't here to stay. Which is good for Wind.
