I saw this coming. But rather than read my "crowing," I suspect you are more interested in what this deal means. On February 1, I explained why "Verizon is sure to buy MCI."
As more details of this deal emerge, we are going to hear more about bulked-up Verizon's plans forIP telephony.To me, the combination of Verizon's installed base, and its existing menu of enterprise and consumer VoIPwill mesh well with MCI's formidable telecommunications infrastructure and existing IP VPN offerings.
Now that the prediction has come true, I'd love to read your TalkBacks. Is this deal a good one for customers? For you?
