The mobile network switches are all Sprint owned/managed as far as I know. At least the employees are Sprint employees when we have to call to sort something out that gets stuck in the switch.

Now, the fiber backhaul is a different story. There are parts of the fiber that is owned by other parties, but that is the same thing for them as well.
