Re: You know, if you compare coverage maps,
Right you are. The only thing saving the big carriers is that they roam onto each other's networks, which effctively does provide more coverage. But when you just look at each carrier's NATIVE network coverage area, Nextel looks pretty darn good.
Nextel looks especially impressive considering that at its peak, Nextel only had 16 million customers, whereas back in 2005 (before the merger) Verizon and Sprint each had at least double the customers that Nextel did. So on a "per customer" basis, Nextel's coverage was actually twice as impressive as Sprint's or Verizon's (although since the Nextel debacle with Sprint and Verizon's continued growth, the gap has widened).
