Boston.com’s Peter Howe has an interesting perspective on the telecom industry and is predicting major consolidation. It is something I have talked about before, but there are some suggestions which don’t make sense. For instance he talks about Vodafone flying solo and then buying AT&T or T-Mobile. AT&T yes, but T-Mobile no, for the later is part of Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone’s archrival in the hotly contested European mobile markets. AT&T marrying AT&T Wireless makes complete sense, and so does BellSouth snapping up Sprint.
