Long term is this a good sell for SBC if the wireless towers is going to be so good for others??

Good question -- but the answer is yes, it is good for SBC, because they wouldn't be able, and wouldn't want to rent their towers out to as many different companies as SpectraSite can, because some of the renters would be competitors.

For example, SpectraSite might rent their towers to Sprint PCS and AT&T Wireless, but SBC wouldn't want to do that because they compete with those companies for wireless customers.

So, SBC wouldn't be able to make as much from the towers as these other companies can.

Fool on,
