Which, BTW, points up a major reason why the original Nextel was so much more operationally efficient than either Sprint or Verizon.

Nextel iDEN covers 278 million POPS and 978,000 square miles of area. That averages to 284 POPS per square mile.

Going by your numbers, Sprint & Verizon CDMA cover 309 million POPS and 2,900,000 square miles, which averages to 106 POPS per square mile.

Looks like Nextel was the smartest and most efficient - at least until Sprint took it over.
