Alternative Investment Management & Research pictures a Yahoo-SoftBank merger, with the latter's CEO running the combined company.
CEO Masayoshi Son is reportedly in talks to acquire the studio behind animated films "Shrek" and "How to Train Your Dragon."
The Internet is run by a cable monopoly in Comcast and a wireless duopoly in Verizon and AT&T, Son says. He wants to shake things up.
Yahoo Japan, partly owned by SoftBank and Yahoo, plans to use the acquisition to launch its own mobile Internet service.
Sprint will be among the first to participate in the Competitive Carrier Association’s Data Access Hub, which could give carriers of all sizes access to a true nationwide 4G LTE network.
SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son will reportedly argue that having a strong third mobile carrier will help even the playing field for in-home broadband.
[commentary] It's clear the powers that be at Sprint aren't willing to give up on a bid for T-Mobile. But what are the company's chances of making headway in convincing regulators to accept a deal?
Vivendi, which owns the world's largest music group, rejects the offer despite its $2 billion premium, the Financial Times reports.
The $21.6 billion deal was made complicated by a bidding war between SoftBank and Dish Network.
CEO John Legere tells CNET that over the long term he's intrigued by the different combinations.
Now that Dish Network is out of the picture, Clearwire shareholders have officially accepted Sprint's $5 a share offer to buy its remaining shares.
With the SoftBank merger looming, holders of just 3 percent of shares in Sprint elect to remain Sprint shareholders.
