bombed? who has the ONLY 4G network in the works TODAY? not any other us carrier.
Why? Because of the merger. Nextel and Sprint were the only ones to own massive amounts of the 2.3GHz/2.5GHz spectrum.

Who was first to release EVDO rev. A and will be the first to release EVDO rev. B?

How many people were laid off when AT&T/Cingular merged? Or when Cingular bought Spring? Or when Alltel bought Western Wireless? Or when Verizon was created by each merger between Bell Atlantic Mobile, Vodafone/Airtouch Cellular, GTE Wireless and PrimeCo?

Who has the only established PTT network that more than 20 Million people use, (think about it this way: without the 20 million nextel phones, any random construction job would take longer, so because of it, your commute to work is a little better because of the highway construction crews being able to instantly cooperate on construction efforts.) Because of the merger, nextel was able to co-locate towers with legacy CDMA towers (place a iDEN radio on that tower) and further increase the capacity and coverage for this network.

So, what has bombed?

The recent layoffs only affect poor performing stores, this happens in every carrier, especially after mergers. There were plenty of stores that were close to each other after the merger and the higher performing store or better location was preferred.
