Cable Can Now Buy CLECs

The FCC has removed the prohibition of cable companies buying CLEC's. Comcast bought CIMCO in 2009. It is the only deal like this thus far. Bankers are now in a frenzy.

Right now there are just two CLEC's in BK - Broadview Networks and TNCI, but there are a lot of CLEC's who are for sale.

With ATT reversing their decision to divest their copper plant, there is still money left for M&A.

Some deals we may see:

Sprint + MetroPCS

Cbeyond + Comcast

8x8 + TWC

Broadview, Integra, Sidera, Birch and some others are still waiting to be courted.
