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.

Eh? 3G is slowing down considerably ever since the Evo launched and now this? Ugh....

Sucks to be a power user.
I really haven't experienced any slow down at all. The Twisted Evil Evo has remained consistent and rather zippy no matter what I throw at it.
A phone primarily advertised as a revolution in the wireless industry for being the first 4G handset, only not because their 4G coverage is so poor.

Once/if they blanket their coverage in 4G, the 3G network strain should drop.

So... why would anyone choose Boost now?

If Cricket truly is able to offer their voiceand data services on Sprint, then they have a better offering than Boost which is also on the Sprint network...

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.
boost is primarily on the iden network not the Sprint network, there are a few device on the cdma but mostly they are on the iden, which = PTT

Metro PCS

So rather than merge with Metro PCS, Leap makes this bold move, eh? I guess Sprint can pick up those subs instead.
