The article presents telecommunication industry-related statistics and various news items associated with it. Western Wireless has hired Deutsche Bank AG for a "soft process" of fielding offers for its international mobile phone assets that could be worth $2 billion. In another development, Vodafone Group PLC, the world's largest mobile-phone company, pledged to buy back $8.2 billion in common stock and doubled its dividend.
