Subject: Better News for Verizon, AT&T Message-ID: <20130120003530.GA10868@telecom.csail.mit.edu> After a rocky 2012, everything is coming up roses for Verizon Communications and AT&T, and the bloom could last for much of the year. In the quarterly reports they will release this week, Verizon (VZ) and AT&T (T) will likely indicate their increasing dominance in the U.S. cellular market. http://online.barrons.com/article/SB50001424052748703596604578235523072009266.html?mod=BOL_twm_col#articleTabs_article%3D1 -or- http://goo.gl/IRcqu -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my address to write to me directly)
