July 15 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Cristina Alesci reports on AT&T's $1.2 billion bid for Leap Wireless in a search for spectrum, but they may face a challenge from T-Mobile. She speaks on Bloomberg Television's "Market Makers."

The different customers are lower end . what this comes down to is spectrum.

All of the wireless carriers want to serve the customers that want better data, faster data, and they cannot get enough of the spectrum until the government can go ahead and auction off more of it.

Until then we have a finite amount.

At&t tried to solve this problem by trying to move -- trying to buy verizon.

Now they are forced to buy smaller players at a higher premium.

It was a pretty big price.

Some people say that perhaps it is too much.

One thing we do not snow just to get his who else is taking a look at this because one player that does have prepaid customers is metro pcs.

T-mobile bought them for you years ago.

-- bought them a few years ago.

Some analysts today are out with reports saying we could see t- mobile will reenter it.

Collects there will be a bidding war?

There may be.

It seems like the spectrum is being bid up to a premium here in the united states.

What are the in occasions of the wireless industry -- what are the implications of the wireless industry as a whole?

The number three and four player, that is sprint and t- mobile, will be forced to go ahead and do other deals.

Remember, sprint has a cute -- a huge cash seduction.

This is going to be an all-out war.

Just today sprint announced an unlimited plan for text, data , and voice we are going to see each of these players getting very aggressive and is not that the number of consumers are not necessarily growing but you figured they are going up.
