If clearwire finds a partner to develop LTE-Advanced on it's fat pipes, sprint will either have to join the party or get it's @ss kicked by it's competitor's data speeds that will run at 10 times the speed Sprint says they're going to use with their $10 billion N.V. project.
Hesse let his hatred for Craig McCaw compel him to launch a horrible strategy for Sprint...
He has failed to set S up to win. His vision, at best, keeps S in third place. Not first; not second; but third; and perhaps eventually not even that. Maybe he's was a accountant somewhere, sometime? Right now he is certainly not a leader, not a winner and not a visionary.
He is letting T & VZ dictate direction which makes it easier for them to pick up the pieces of S that will be left over after he wrecks it.
