Re: New technologies

And AT&T's Uverse markets and other areas that it makes sense to upgrade? Or are you simply assuming that AT&T is going to sell all of its residential wireline markets off once it gets them deregulated? Hint, it's not.

...

Just wait. I'm on the record for suggesting that T and VZ will increase CAPEX in their wireline infrastructure after their LTE builds are complete. Maybe I'll be proven wrong, but I'm betting otherwise.

I think that you have misinterpreted AT&T's LTE plans for the future. We are not talking just about the current state of LTE as a mobile platform transport, but also about a fixed LTE deployment that will initially replace wireline DSL and POTS, and eventually be the "last mile" for U-verse as well. It will be what Clearwire could/should have been if they had the capital and political influence that AT&T has.

AT&T's ultimate goal is to rid themselves totally from copper wireline maintenance (and that will decimate the CWA as well).

No, we're talking about mobile LTE and fixed LTE to fill the gaps where it doesn't make sense from a business perspective to upgrade the wired infrastructure.

Granted, breaking the unions would be helpful from a business perspective, but I don't believe AT&T wants to get rid of all of its wireline infrastructure. That simply does not make sense.
