Verizon will have to invest a small fortune in order to compete with the big three on a national scale. I wouldn't expect the pricing to be that different after an initial "loss leader" period to build a customer base. All competition helps, but I wouldn't expect a miracle.
While the federal government has loosened the limitations to foreign ownership of a telecom, I haven't heard any rumors that they're opening spectrum auctions to at&t, etc; I think that's baseless speculation?

There is no difference between 75KM over the border and 1000KM over the board as no Canadian telecom has US towers. I imagine that Verizon will have limits on how they can leverage their US operations if their purchase of Wind goes through.
