In order for at&t to be the next anything, they need to concentrate on getting their customer service and network issues resolved first. Once again, they ranked dead last in both in Consumer Reports latest reader poll.

Interesting viewpoint. How would you explain, then, that Sprint has lost 13,000,000 Nextel customers?

Perhaps you could also explain how it is that AT&T has 106 million wireless subscribers, compared to Sprint's 56 million.

While you're at it, regarding your comment above denigrating AT&T's network, can you please explain how it is that Verizon & AT&T are both demonstrably farther along on their 4G network buildout than Sprint is, even though Sprint started its 4G network at least two years before Verizon, and a full three years before AT&T? In that same vein, perhaps you can explain why Sprint has faltered badly not only with its 4G buildout, Sprint is also faltering on its 3G Network Vision project?

In case you are just too busy defending Sprint against all of the meanies who disagree with your Sprint fanboi fervor, please note that I've pasted below a few FACTUAL excerpts and their source URLs that effectively debunk your contentions that AT&T is inferior and your implication that Sprint is somehow superior:

"Overall, the carrier [AT&T] managed to add 678,000 net new customers in Q3, more than double what it added in Q2 — this puts the company at a total of 105.9 million subscribers, up from 100.7 million a year ago."
SOURCE: t-q3-2012-earnings-financials

"Sprint served around 56 million customers at the end of the quarter. ..."
AND: "The Sprint platform added 410,000 net postpaid customers during the quarter, which were outweighed by Nextel platform postpaid losses of 866,000 net postpaid customers in the quarter. ..."
AND: "Sprint has slipped a little in its Network Vision network deployment--..."
SOURCE: ses-423000-subs-q3-nextel-shutdown-looms/2012 -10-25

It will be interesting to see if Mr. Gloopster's response will be facts, rather than the usual foments.
