    That's great to see both Metro PCS and Cricket expanding their footprints. I think both of those companies (and actually any company providing reliable and cheap unlimited service) is a great alternative for a lot of people. Seriously, most people stay within their "local" calling area most of the time so as long as those providers offer good local coverage and some affordable roaming options, they will continue to do very well.

    The Upstate and Midlands areas of SC could hopefully see some Cricket as well, since Cricket is in Charlotte also.
    Columbia & Greenville are easy markets to cover and expand.

    They would do well here, and also in WNC (Asheville), as it complements Central North Carolina's Cricket coverage

    ah... Savannah and surrounding areas are getting another unlimited wireless option (I think that Suncom still offers theirs, right?). I wonder how long will it be for Boost/Sprint offertheir unlimited product to compete with Cricket.

    In Georgia, Cricket has service in the Chattanooga suburbs, Columbus, and Macon... so acquiring Hargray Wireless will only enhance their footprint in the state. On the other hand, ATL has only Boost and MetroPCS. Athens has those plus Suncom.... While Macon and Columbus have Boost and Cricket. Sothern Linc also offers unlmited minutes in the whole state.

    I felt that Boost was being short sughted by omitting Augusta and savannah from their unlimited plans... maybe this will change soon.

    Also, if Metro would have made the right offer, they could have covered most of the state by now... they'd only have to fill in coverage along the interstates.
