Leap today announced that its operating subsidiary, Cricket Communications, will buy network time wholesale from Sprint. The five-year arrangement will let Cricket offer its new lineup of products and services across the country on Sprint's 3G network. Cricket will have to deliver a minimum level of revenue to Sprint, per the arrangement, but the terms of the deal will improve for Cricket as its subscriber base grows, according to a Fierce Wireless report.
3G is slowing down considerably ever since the Evo launched and now this? Ugh....
Sucks to be a power user.
Once/if they blanket their coverage in 4G, the 3G network strain should drop.
So... why would anyone choose Boost now?
Maybe this is all a sign that Cricket is finally ready to be eaten up by a bigger company. Being made interoperable with Sprint sure would ease the transition.
