First the pieces of the puzzle: I believe that just recently WCOM and CSCO completed an agreement with MCOM in which WCOM now owns 35% & CSCO approx. 45% plus of MCOM. Additionally with the proposed WCOM/FON merger which bring Sprint fiber optic network and Sprint PCS (wireless) into the picture under WCOM. What I think I see is WCOM'S ability to integrate wireless (PCS) onto the WCOM footprint. Enabling the use of MCOM's Ricochet into wireless data. Internet infrastructure with CSCO's MMDS. Not to mention WCOM huge presence of Internet infrastructure in UUNET.

While I do not think MCOM will go out of business, QCOM's HDR will take most of this sort of business. MCOM is doomed to be a nich player.
