Oh yeah. That's been part of the plan ever since the merger was
announced. No surprises there. Bets that it will be bought up by VZ or
Wireless, Sprint) and 3 telco companies (SBC, Verizon, XYZ). Since
Cingular is associated with (and part-owned by) SBC and Verizon Wireless
with you can guess who yourself, that leaves the question of what will be
the counterpart in the telco that is associated with Sprint Wireless.
As you can see from above, I don't think that Sprint Telco will be bought
by either Verizon or SBC - to me it seems more likely that we'll see it
merged together with one (or more) of the other remaining large ILEC/CLEC
telcos (probably XO or Qwest or maybe it'd end up being XO+Qwest+Sprint
that will make up XYZ).
But anyway - age of competition and deregulation and price-wars for
customers in US seem soon to be coming to its end...
