Re: If it doesn't go through then what?

said by xenophon:

Tmob merges with Sprint or bought by Google?

I suspect DT will get out of the US market if they can't get a controlling interest.

Google will not get into the telecom business.

I don't know if it's true (I'd lean probably not) but there were rumblings on Wall St that Google did make an offer for Tmob and ATT offered much more.

totally agree on google never being interested in this big of of an infrastructure buy.

Google does everything solely to protect search and advertising business. Even the Kansas City fiber buildout is expected to be a next generation test bed to protect their search and advertising. Plus they get some good PR out of it with the public. Anything to get people to look away from their near monopoly on search traffic.
