Not Profitable?

Not only was Nextel a profitable company pre-merger, it had the highest ARPU of any in the wireless industry.

With regard to it being the network with more customer complaints--that never happened when they were a stand-alone company. Not until the merger did customer defections start taking place. The bottom line is Sprint has neglected the iDEN network, and abandoned completely any plans to upgrade it from day one.

I will agree that now Sprint was forced to make a choice; unfortunately, the choice was to shut down the network they neglected.
