A Shakeout In The U.S. Wireless Industry Is Nearly Inevitable

The U.S. regulator has frequently argued that for the benefit of the U.S. consumer, the U.S. wireless market needs a minimum of four competitors, fending off AT&T Inc.'s attempt to acquire T-Mobile US Inc. in 2011 and again sending strong signals to Sprint Corp. to back off from a bid for T-Mobile. However, I believe that the U.S. network consolidation is inevitable as smaller carriers such as T-Mobile, Sprint, U.S. Cellular find it more and more difficult to generate the level of cash flows required to invest in upgrading and maintaining existing networks.

la TV stations free up airwaves for wireless broadband

An effort to free up some of the airwaves used by TV broadcasts and make them available for wireless broadband took a big step forward this week in the U.S. Two TV stations in Los Angeles, KLCS and KCET, have agreed to share a single frequency to deliver their programming, freeing up a channel that can be auctioned off to wireless carriers next year. The change, which the Federal Communications Commission calls "repackaging," is possible because digital TV broadcasts don't need the full 6MHz of broadcast spectrum that was used for analog TV.
