    I think Wind had to become part of a larger corporate entity to survive. Better to be a little sad that they couldn't survive as an independent than have them wither away to nothingness, which would...

    If Shaw hopes to grow the Wind acquisition they can't just become "like the big three", at least not for many years down the road when they have a comparable network. They will have to be relatively...

    Only flexibility in a deal is that which does not result in an "undue concentration" of spectrum in any of the incumbents. The Rogers deal went through precisely because of the transfer of both Mobi...

    That's how you get gov't approval. Telus never offered up the same kind of money and they actually have a greater need for spectrum in some areas than Rogers. Almost wonder if Rogers overpaid.

    It is still cheap roaming and non-roaming (not so much for data).

    It may simply reflect that roaming costs are actually cheaper for Wind than the amortized costs for providing such on their own...

    The INITIAL reports suggested that the cash burn rate may do in Mobi in short order but a FULL reading of the reports as the saga unfolded would not have convinced anyone of what you imagine.

    Amdocs is "small" only compared to the majority creditors who are owed several times more - Amdocs is by far the largest of the "small" creditors and is also rather important in that they provide...

    Yes they can and have been hanging in with the faint hope of finding that white knight to save them.

    There are the same small creditors left as at the start - they cannot legally be paid their...

    Mobilicity pulled out of the latest spectrum auction - the one and only way to "buy" spectrum. Their investors apparently pulled-out and as far as I know you still need cash or financing to buy...

    The only success Mobi has had is milking their protection under CCAA to a length well beyond that originally imagined.

    I wouldn't say they "took a risk and lost", at least not with respect to the...

    Phone turnover rates are huge, almost everyone will have a new phone by the time the spectrum is deployed and they perhaps start reclaiming HSPA spectrum for LTE.

    The entity bidding would have actually been a separately funded subsidiary of Mobi not included in the creditor protection/restructuring plan.

    Neither the investors nor Mobi expects to be continuing as an independent company - the new spectrum is just a means to the end-game of a sale.

    More dreaming by Mobi. The only major player they could sell to would be foreign (a la Verizon); no fancy financial footwork that leaves an incumbent with effective control of the spectrum will fly....

    Ahh the vagaries of listing bands properly, which is so seldom done. "AWS" is band 4 or 1700-2100 (1700 MHz uplink, 2100 MHz downlink). Unfortunately, it is often listed like 850/1700/1900/2100 or...
