John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

With the recent trend of privatizations in the telecom industry slowed by capital liquidity problems, there is news of the continued consolidation of the telecom market with T-Mobile's acquisition of SunCom. Tricia Duryee looks at the transaction.

There are two aspects to this transaction. The first is the addition of 1.1m subscribers that brings T-Mobile within a mere....... 25m subs of third place Sprint Nextel. The other aspect is the ability of T-Mobile to trim the roaming fees that T-Mobile had to incur in the "Carolinas" and other areas where their coverage was lacking.

While I'm not impressed with the price that T-Mobile is paying to acquire "just" 1.1m subs, I am impressed with the ability to expand the network and trim associated costs.
