$20bln is a real lot of money! Sprint oughta be able to accomplish a lot with that! Look at how fast T-Mobile deployed LTE with the $4bln it got from ATT!

Something is not right at Sprint. I'm glad I left this incompetent company. I hope T-Mobile comes from behind and bites them in the a$$.

Yes 22 billion was invested in the merger with Sprint. However only 8 billion available for network expansion. For Softbank to get the 77% majority share they had to buyout the share holders.
