    I would like to possible see uscc in the mix. Provide coverage in uscc areas for Sprint then run uscc native on Sprint network then once coverage improves, call the carrier uscc

    That would be a thought, if the cable companies didn't want to start from scratch.

    I saw that today. Charter is THE WORST cable company. That would be a HUGE mistake.

    Would Comcast Wireless or Spectrum Wireless sound any better? I think they can rebuild their brand name if they can build their network. Maybe it's too late at this point.

    No it's not too late. People keep judgeing all while Forgetting that att and VZW only have coverage in alot of areas from buying out small carriers to avoid the cost of building out and, TMobile got paid from att. Buying smaller carriers isn't a option for Sprint.

    The worst cell company with the worst cable company. They sound perfect for each other.

    Masa Son is being a complete idiot. He's trying to approach these cable companies from a position of power instead of accepting a loss. Now that Comcast and Charter have rejected them (which I think is a mistake), where do they go now? Crawl back to T-Mobile with better terms? Keep running things alone? I think Softbank needs to suck it up and buy out Sprint or sell them at a significant discount.

    Sounds like the deal is a no go. The news said Comcast or charter wasn't interested
    Not sure what TMobile will do if anything. Seems like nobody wants to deal with Sprint

    That just says Charter. No where does it say Comcast.

    The news this morning made it sound like Comcast would pass also

    Anything is possible but I think any company that does a deal with Sprint knows exactly what kind of problems they would be jumping into and to most that just won't be beneficial

    Any company that does a deal with Sprint is asking for trouble I think. Looks like they are starting to wise up and tell Sprint to hit the road
