Verizon Wireless consumes Golden State Cellular and Mobi PCS
April 21, 2014 | By Mike Dano
 

Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) is expanding the reach of its LTE network in California and Hawaii via new deals with two small carriers, Golden State Cellular in California and Mobi PCS in Hawaii. Under the terms of the two separate deals, which both still require FCC approval, Verizon will essentially buy the small carriers.

I'm sure the FCC won't bat an eye at either of these transactions either. As I believe AJ described it, death of a thousand cuts.  :unsure:

It's not like Sprint can't do the same at this point so I don't really get the complaining. I feel like S should try to do the same and acquire smaller regionals. But anyway Vzw is just actively expanding their network through acquisitions.

Sprint is doing the opposite by getting an alliance of interdependent small carriers via CCA and NetAmerica.

my concern with that is anything stopping vzw or Att from buying one of these CCA members effectively shutting Sprint out?

No but why would the CCA members want to be bought out when they can operate and compete effectively as individual entities under the umbrella of CCA / NetAmerica with the full financial / material support of Sprint / Softbank?

I was thinking the same thing. I just hope they aren't looking for a quick payday with a buyout.

There are always those that are looking for a quick payday but I venture the vast majority of the owners want to keep control of their companies. These small carriers are typically locally owner and made and very tight nit compared to the nationwide carriers who often don't know what the right hand and left hand is doing. 

 

These small carriers now have the material, financial, and alliances available to them so they can compete as themselves with their own visions and methods of doing stuff. It's an extremely attractive offer and I would venture most would love to be part of it.
