Re: Raising prices WILL fix the problems
I think most intelligent people in the industry want to see Sprint succeed. Competition is healthy and necessary and to lay claim that there is no competition because Verizon and AT&T have destroyed it all is completely bogus.
Back in the day when I worked for Sprint PCS, our rate plans were no cheaper than Bell Atlantic's and Cingulars. The biggest difference was nationwide coverage and digital service versus regional coverage and analog/some digital service. Sprint has made some poor business choices since... the first of which was the $125 spending limit. I think everyone agrees now, that at the time, giving service to people who couldn't pay for it was a BAD idea. There unlimited data offerings is like the spending limit of the new times. Like was explained, heavy users will gravitate towards the less expensive plans, while moderate users will drift towards Big Red and AT&T. 5 GB is ALOT of data for the average user. Internet gaming does not consume massive amounts of data as one might think, because in most cases the game is loaded to your computer. For those who need real time streaming video on the go, $80 is not going to be the issue (remember NEED not want, at one point they were paying $80 for dialup speeds).
