Windstream bought Q-Comm this week. Q-Comm owns Norlight and KDL for $782M - cash, stock and debt. Windstream gets 30,000 fiber route miles (whatever the heck that is). It also acquires about 5500 SMB customers to complement what it bought with Nuvox. Guess what it wants the fiber for? Wireless backhaul business. Shocking. That's something everyone is banking on.
Intel bought security firm McAfee for $7.7B in cash.
More to come later. I have to jump on a plane.
