Ok, one last January poll – the inverse of last week’s poll, which I also asked last year. Which of the same list of service providers is most likely to be a target of M&A in 2012? Last year we only got one out of the top 10 – Global Crossing, which came in second and in fact did get bought by Level 3. PAETEC wasn’t seen as a likely target last January, gaining just 3% of votes. Consolidation seems likely to continue this year, but who will be the targets? As before, I am including only network operators with a substantial wholesale/enterprise arm and with a net worth known or estimated to be in the $500M range or higher. You can select up to three. If I am missing anyone, you can enter those as well.
