The video above is from Monday's MarketFoolery podcast, featuring host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer and Jason Moser. In this segment the guys analyze the future of wireless in the U.S. and what it means for investors. In the wake of the Softbank-Sprint (S) deal, investors are focused on whether the new Sprint will be able to better compete with Verizon (VZ -0.63%) and AT&T. What many are missing, though, is how tower operators like American Tower (AMT -0.28%), Crown Castle International (CCI -0.17%) and SBA Communications (SBAC 0.05%) are also slated to benefit from the Softbank-Sprint deal. Listen in to hear the full conversation.
