Verizon Wireless Continues to Gobble up Smaller Carriers
Earlier this month Verizon Wireless announced that the company was acquiring Cincinnati Bell's wireless spectrum, assets and customers in a deal estimated to be worth $120 million
. Now Verizon's expanding its size and scope slightly further, with two more deals in Hawaii and California. The company says they're acquiring California's Golden State Cellular and will be integrating those users over to Verizon
in the next fifteen months. Verizon's also acquiring the spectrum of Mobi PCS in Hawaii, leasing it back to them as that company "makes the transition away from being a facilities-based services provider."
