Sprint Can't Offer Service In iPCS Regions
A judge upheld an earlier decision that bars Sprint Nextel from providing wireless services in areas covered by iPCS. iPCS had sued Sprint and Clearwire in hopes to block the merger of the two companies' WiMax businesses. iPCS is a Sprint affiliate. It offers Sprint-branded service in 80 markets, including portions of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. iPCS currently has about 675,000 subscribers.
As to iPCS' claims...they are quite valid. Forget the dual mode CDMA/WiMax phones to come. iPCS sells Sprint Broadband Connect cards. How are they going to feel about competing directly with WiM...
IPCS bought up?

I will bet you 10 to 1 that Sprint feeels the same way right now.
