Poll: Which US Network Operators are Most Likely to be Acquired?

January 11th, 2013 by · 2 Comments

Ok, last week we looked at who will be 2013's buyers, now it's time for the other end of the sword for this Friday's poll.  Of US-based network operators, which are most likely to get bought out in 2013?  Again, you can pick up to three:

Of course, XO has been the runaway favorite for consolidation according to this poll for the last several years, and has not happened yet (unless you count Icahn's minority-shareholder-cleansing event, which I don't).  Nevertheless, it's always interesting to see who people within the industry think are the most likely consolidation targets as opposed to the Wall Street analysts.

    A large new building lease: http://biz.yahoo.com/e/130109/twtc8-k.html combined with rumblings of a lot of new hiring. Does that sound like a company on the verge of being acquired?

  • Touch on the light side says:

    FiberLight is atleast 3-4 years from being acquired. They have a huge project in Texas that requires huge installation focus (biggest build out in NA right now)…wont happen…plus, why would the chariman and CEO bring in a new COO/president from ST Louis to ATL to run the company…?
