There is only one  way for these companies to expand, buy market share.
Qwest has a big market in the west.
They just won't offer that much for Qwest.
Maybe 12.00 per share, my guess.

Yes but, Quest has a loyal customer base, which is substantially different in profile than the other Telco's client base. Its sorta like Verizon buying MCI, MCI offered a complete diverse portfolio of target clent bases and Assets. Consolidation also allows for the sharing of infrastructure or getting rid of infrastructure, to maximize rerturn.

Although I do not contradict that Quest has huge debt, and something not many would want to tackle going into a buyout, Quest could still be a valuable add-on depending on who the buyer is.

I believe MCI was a huge strategic advantage for Verizon to buy. It was a strategic buy not a revenue buy. Value is not just based on revenue. I'd argue that Quest could offer significant strategic advantages.

Not likely.
Qwest has 14 billion in long term debt, Qwest is still losing money,
Qwest has NO wireless,
Qwest has a smaller customer base per square mile than
any player.

Qwest is next.

We all know consolidation is going to continue.

So I went out and bought some Qwest  shares this am.
