    Ugh, ANOTHER Sprint MVNO

    Starting in 2005 (wow thats weird..only a month away) we will now have ESPN Mobile! (Mobile Virtual Network Operator)
    That means we will be the MVNO for the new AT&T Wireless, Virgin Mobile, Qwest, and now ESPN. How many more wireless providers can we market handle before being overloaded?

    stupid yet, but as long as they increase SPCS's profit, its all good!

    The towers are there, if they dont have to provide the man power, its pure profit!

    I like to see my network improved!

    Do you really want a phone that is sticky and greasy?

    Wasnt it said before that SPCS was the only carrier that had the network to handle MVNOs being that they do have a licence everywhere???

    Someone mentions Hooters and you think of buffalo wings? Um, okay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I think that william's got the right idea.

    If you read between the lines --- espn streaming broadcast quality video, high speed data network --- Sprint is going to start launching ev-do in the second half of 2005 and going completely national in the beginning of 2006.

    EVDO/EVDV MVNO was the model that defuncted carrier NextWave was shooting for. Its not pure profit, but it puts the carrier into the position of offering just wholesale minutes, rather than all the overhead that goes into dealing with end consumers.

    Its a very good position to be in.
