The expense of actually building the network is also a huge factor. Sprint doesn't have as many subscribers as the big two. Yet they're expected to be price-competitive, which means they don't have as much revenue.
Yet they're expected to build just as big - and just as expensive - a network as the bigger guys.
The math there is kind of tough on Sprint. Half the revenue but expenses almost as high? They have to do something different... getting someone to share the network costs is one way.
