The irony is how, just a few months, ago people were constantly proclaiming that it was just not economical to field two networks of fundamentally different technologies, and for that reason alone Nextel should be shut down as quickly as possible. Yet now that Sprint again has two networks (CDMA + LTE, or three if you want to include WiMax), no one is saying it's a bad idea to have multiple network technologies. Similarly, not a soul complains that Verizon, AT&T and T-Mo all field two separate, incompatible networks now. But back when Sprint had CDMA & iDEN running at the same time, the excuse was always that it's fundamentally wrong and economically unsound to have multiple, incompatible networks.
Funny, and interesting, how the tune changed so quickly.
