T-mobile parent is in talks for MetroPCS - and MetroPCS confirms talks! This might be to spark more action from Sprint, who it has been said was talking to MetroPCS.
Overheard at ITEXPO: Level3 being bought by Comcast now that the CLEC-cable ban has been lifted by the FCC. For Comcast, Level3's debt is just a rounding error - but the video pieces of L3 via Vyvx make it attractive to Comcast who now owns NBCU.
Rumor at ITEXPO is that CenturyLink is in talks with twt. I didn't see either of those happening.
Folks who would like to be bought: XO, MetroPCS, Leap, Cbeyond, and a bunch of others.
