Will Sprint Unlimited Data be Ephemeral?

by MadFatMan    Oct 15, 2012, 12:59 PM

Softbank will surely examine where Sprint is bleeding capital and resources such as offering UNLIMITED data when there is a clearly limited and finite resource to be had?

I am a true fan of Dan Hesse and Bob Johnson but the unlimited data business model is not sustainable while maintaining an acceptable operating margin and while contributing and maintaining the EBITDA and OBITDA.

Sprint is rich asset and spectrum but they are seriously lacking operational funds. and truly unlimited handset data is quite taxing on the resources of a network that is crippled by a botched network vision upgrade that is way over budget and behind schedule and that has negativity impacted and ALIENATED thousands of otherwise loyal base customers , almost bankrupt Clear (formally known as Clearwire) that has leeched off of Sprint for 6 years now (these guys cannot even make their interest payments on their loans forget the principle.

I hope this is a the beginning of a new and prosperous chapter for Sprint
