Interesting that they're acquiring a cdma provider at the same time they're talking about shutting down their cdma network.

I hope they will retire the CDMA spectrum and replace it with a 4G (LTE?) data-only network. They can offer Internet to homes without piggy-backing on telephone or cable infrastructure.

I'd think it's just a play to get Publics 280,000 subscribers...

Public has so little (low grade) spectrum that I can't see much else to this...
