Again, limited major city launch

Still, Sprint is focusing its efforts on the smallest of the larger cities. Of all the cities launched, Oakland is the largest this round, and even then, the signal is so weak, the speed so limited, and the coverage so terrible, I cant help but honestly say that Sprint is only doing the bare minimum to claim a launch when it is in fact nowhere remotely close to offering anything compared to Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile or MetroPCS in that city.

"Best-ever Sprint platform postpaid ARPU of $64.20 and 11th consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth."

What's the big deal about ARPU?
This figure represents how much customers spend with their wireless service providers, and Nextel always has led the pack. In the third quarter, Nextel reported that its ARPU was $69. Spri...
That is very, very interesting. I bet if you account for inflation, the numbers would be even more interesting.
