I see that Cisco is notionally on the acquisition trail which doesn’t come as a surprise. It is a good time to be cash rich.
It wouldn’t surprise me either to find out that Cisco has been sniffing around the Nortel Carrier Division. It would be a great fit. I don’t think it will be too long before we find out.
We haven’t really seen consolidation happen on the big scale in the tech world yet this turndown. Timico has picked up some ADSL customers from defunct ISPs and may yet pick up a business or two.
Tiscali has been trying to be “consolidated” for a while now but is struggling to make it happen! It should only be a matter of time one way or another.
