Wireless industry consolidation is occurring because it is more efficient to have national coverage. Companies need to have broad coverage to be profitable and to avoid churn. Bundling is a market factor. Companies want to sell customers more than one type of communications solution.

Cingular complemented the AT&T network rather than competing with it. The economies of scale and of eliminating duplication of executives and services people made sense. With Verizon in the picture, there is still intense competition. Voice over IP promises to provide an alternate technology.

The combined Cingular-AT&T Wireless, which will take the Cingular name, will have wireless networks that cover 49 states and will have annual revenue of more than $32 billion. Cingular estimates that the merger will save the combined company $2 billion to $3 billion a year starting in 2006, in part through thousands of layoffs of overlapping positions. U.S. wireless service provider markets consist of server, advertising, subscription services, and online music segments. The equipment segments will grow at a steady pace while the content delivery segments will grow significantly more rapidly.
