AT&T posturing for the future...

AT&T Inc. said Friday (8th) it will buy the assets of Verizon Wireless in 79 mainly rural areas for $2.35 billion, a deal that will affect more than 1 million subscribers.



Verizon Wireless was forced to sell the service areas, which are spread over 18 states, to satisfy regulatory conditions of its purchase of Alltel Corp. - Associated Press.





One step forward and two steps back for Verizon? A lot of $$$ for rural area "customers". What is really going on here? Just a thought. What are yours?

    My fatherinlaw will be happy!



    He hasn't been able to get an iPhone in ND, because ATT doesn't serve the area (They have roaming agreements, but not as a primary provider.) Looks like that's going to change.

    Just by the by, I think the word you're looking for in the thread title is "positioning."



    "Posturing" would mean something along the lines of AT&T making empty gestures or pulling PR stunts of little value.



    Unless, of course, that's actually what you mean, but I don't get that impression from the post.
