T-Mobile and MetroPCS to Merge (“T-Metro”?)

[Updated: Some clever person registered T-Metro.com in May of 2012! jlk]

Merger announced today. T-Metro (my name; not theirs…yet) will be the 4th largest carrier after Sprint Nextel.

According to Fierce Wireless, the deal is structured as a recapitalization. MetroPCS will perform a reverse stock split (1 new share for every two existing shares), . . . → Read More: T-Mobile and MetroPCS to Merge (“T-Metro”?)

9/11/01: I was in the middle of having breakfast.

On this important day, like many others, I offer my ‘where were you on 9/11?” story.

I was having a quiet breakfast when I first became aware of something quite out of the ordinary.

As I recall, the main course of my breakfast consisted of a cheddar cheese omelet. On the side were home fries . . . → Read More: 9/11/01: I was in the middle of having breakfast.

Section 6409(b)(1): Mandatory Wireless Siting on Federal Property?

Section 6409(a) of the Middle Class Tax Relief Act

I’ve spent a lot of time and spilled a lot of ink writing about Section 6409(a) of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (H.R. 3630). That’s the poorly conceived and equally poorly written section addressing wireless collocations at some existing wireless sites.

Lease Optimization – that old familiar story

Increasingly, wireless telecommunications landlords are being approached by firms representing their wireless carrier tenants for the purpose of securing a reduction in the rent and/or rent escalator the carrier pays to the landlord. Sometimes the demand is for a ‘rent vacation’ for up to several years.

Generally, the process described above is called, “Lease . . . → Read More: Lease Optimization – that old familiar story
