Unwrapping the top telecom M&As of 2009

It would seem that with the ongoing credit crisis taking place that telecom M&A activity would have been dead or nonexistent in 2009, but nothing could be further from the truth.

In today's feature on the Top M&As of 2009, I place this year's M&A activity into various distinctive holiday baskets: Tier 2 ILEC consolidation began; Hoaxes/Rumors; KPN/iBasis come together; Bargain sales; Comcast beefs up business; and Bye, bye Next Level Communications.

So as you get ready to hoist another cup of eggnog and figure out why some of the Christmas lights aren't working, I invite you to take a look at Part 1 of our Top 10 M&As in Telecom feature (click here) and let us know what you think. --Sean
