    Just to clarify though, I asked around about Vodafone a little bit more. From what I'm getting they are purely a wireless company. They are also Verizon Wireless' business partner in Europe. At one point the Verizon core company was going to spin off Verizon Wireless and merge it with Vodafone as a separate company. I now recall this. At the time, every telco that was spinning off a wireless unit was seeing the initial stock price shoot through the roof. Before Verizon could finalize the spinoff, the market crashed and the stock price of all those wireless spinoffs had too. Verizon decided that that keeping Verizon Wireless company as part of the overall company would better serve to keep the overall Verizon stock stable. They continue to partner with Vodafone in Europe to this day though. So what Claire was saying is correct to the extent that Vodafone and Verizon Wireless share revenue in Europe. Which makes me positive now that the chart up there is just wireless - and maybe even just wireless in Europe. There is no way that Vodafone is as large as Verizon or SBC.

    As for who is the largest overall company, I am finding out that SBC's merger with AT&T will make them the largest in the world despite the gains Verizon will have with MCI Worldcom. So Verizon will drop to number 2.
    ROOTING for WebOS makes me more sympathetic to Cubs fans.

    As for the discussion about sizes of telco corporations, I nearly fell out of my seat when Clulup claimed that Vodafone was 70% larger than Verizon...

    As for who is the largest telco corporation, it is without a doubt either Verizon or SBC. Most likely it is Verizon...

    BTW, I am employed by Verizon and everyone here is asking what kind of clueless person thought Vodafone was 70% larger than Verizon.
    Bob-C, here's some free advice: Next time you suggest somebody is clueless, you better have your story double-checked. Because otherwise you risk looking really stupid when what the other person says turns out to be true.

    So again, step by step:

    Verizon Communications Inc. is a US based telco corporation which has both landlines and wireless services. The latter they share as a joint venture together with Vodafone. The market capitalization(which best describes the size of the company in economic terms,) of Verizon Communications is 100.62 billion US$.

    Vodafone is a telco corporation based in the UK which focuses on wireless data and voice communication. It's market capitalization is GB£93.7. One GB£ is US$ 1.92340, so the market capitalization of Vodafone is US$180 billion. So, in fact, Vodafone is actually 79% larger than Verizon, not only seventy.

    So, when looking at those numbers, who is clueless, you (together with all those in your company who thought Verizon is larger than Vodafone) or me? Personally, I think you are wrong, but if you have better numbers saying something else about the market cap of the two companies, I am open to change my mind.

    If you fail to give better numbers showing something else, I will take your post as the perfect example of somebody ignorantly thinking US companies are biggest anyway.

    Does the USA have any value? If you can think of anything positive, please provide it. You each come across as if the USA has absolutely nothing positive to add to society.

    Oh, that's funny. I know you didn't intend it in this manner but if you think of society as the World that's awfully ironic.

    You seem to hate the democratic party... can you say anything positive about it?

    You talk about the GOP as if any criticism of it is totally invalid and anything they do wrong is justified because the Dems are worse.

    Criticizing America doesn't mean someone hates it.. we just want it straightened out!

    so lets see if you have anything positive to say about the dem. party.. other than a clairegrrl flippant remark....

    I have to take it as a no you don't have anything good to say about USA. Have you ever liked the USA? Someone asked you the other day, when were the good ole days? Which administration was things hunky dory? You are doom and gloom . Please prove me wrong and provide some positive views of USA.

    Regarding positive things about Democrats. I absolutely love blue dog democrats!

    I also really respect a well know known democrat, Mr. Zell Miller of Georgia.
