M&A Poll: Which US Network Operators Will Be Bought in 2012 (Pick 3)

January 12th, 2012 by · 1 Comment

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.

    I don’t see AT&T or VZ wireline selling for quite some time, if ever. I also don’t see Sprint leaving wireline, though I don’t want them to.
