The FierceWireless “powerful person” tournament opened almost a week ago, pitting 26 of the nation’s top wireless executives against each other in a weeklong tournament that asks one question: Who is the most powerful person in the U.S. wireless industry?

At the beginning of voting, the question was wide open. Would T-Mobile’s John Legere capture a second win, or would the massive employee base at AT&T or Verizon step up to vote for their respective executive? Or would the title go to another player, like the head of a regulatory agency, or a vendor?

The final matchup pits the nation’s fourth-largest wireless network operator against one of the world’s largest telecom equipment vendors. The next 24 hours will decide the winner.

We’ll close this final vote at 10 a.m. Eastern time tomorrow, on Tuesday, Dec. 4, and then we’ll announce the winner. As in previous rounds, we’re using Polldaddy.com for the actual voting, and repeated voting is prohibited with a block to cookies and IP addresses. The tournament bracket is below, and below that is the actual matchup you can vote on.

Enjoy! — Mike | @mikeddano
