Sprint Intends To Be A Player

It's amazing what a little cash can do for a company.  Softbank's investment into Sprint has enabled Sprint to take a majority ownership in Clearwire.  "Clearwire’s spectrum is crucial to planned high-speed upgrades to Sprint’s network."  Certainly the plan is to build the widest, most efficient next generation broadband communication system to rival its competitors, AT&T and Verizon.  As we become a nation requiring more access to wireless at the fastest speeds possible, a leap like this could propel Sprint well forward and continue to force its competitors to hasten its capital expenditures to manage an increasing demand.

With Softbank, a Japanese owned investment group with businesses in mobile and fixed communication, Sprint becomes an international player as well.  The world becomes a smaller and smaller place as companies entrench themselves, not only in the US, but across the globe.  We do indeed live in interesting times.
