Local paper reports Telscape may scotch plan to buy Kite Networks' Tempe, Chandler networks: The abrupt shutdown by Gobility of their network services--but not the hardware--in Tempe and Chandler, Ariz., is leading Telscape to reconsider its purchase of those networks, six months in the making. Telscape has been trying to take over network operations even though the deal isn't done, the local East Valley Tribune reports.
Yuma, Ariz., recognizes their network won't be built: Kite had committed some time ago to building a network in Yuma with a local partner. (This article incorrectly says Telscape has purchased Kite, when the arrangement isn't complete, and Telscape is buying just the Arizona network.)
In Longmont, Colo., another Kite network goes free for the moment as its future is decided: Longmont's network has been set to "free" while Gobility seeks a buyer, according to the Longmont Times-Call.
