It comes down to volume. Sprint charges less than Verizon and AT&T. The costs of deploying the network are the same. In fact it might actually be more expensive for Sprint, since Verizon and AT&T probably have more leverage in negotiating deals.

Rural areas essentially mean fewer customers per square foot, which means fewer customers to pay for the equipment needed to supply service to them. It's pretty much the same reason the cable and telephone companies don't do it. The revenue simply doesn't justify the expense.
