Sprint CEO: Industry Has to Deal with the Duopoly
Sprint CEO Dan Hesse today said that he believes further consolidation in the wireless telecommunications industry is good and even necessary — as long as the nation's two largest wireless network operators aren't involved. "We're certianly working very hard to compete with AT&T and Verizon," said Hesse. "The industry has to deal with the issue of the duopoly. The gap beween the number two and number three players is enormous. We always have been and always will be open to further consolidation, as long as it isn't AT&T or Verizon Wireless." Hesse said that it is fine for smaller companies, including Sprint, to consolidate, but the current duopoly is "not healthy" for the industry.

Wait a minute
The fact is simple people continue to stay with Verizon and Att despite the lower prices offered elseware for a reason, that is why Sprint rarely shows net adds and has watched the value of their company continue to fall.
People are putting too much of their own emotion into this
Let's forget for a second that Verizon and AT&T are MUCH more expensive than Sprint, and look at the fact that Sprint is the ONLY national carrier with unlimited data.
It's the fact that Verizon and AT&T think they can get away with capping you - and also charging you more.
So yes, Dan was discussing how two mega-companies are not good for the average person - and it shouldn't be in any ones interests (besides the corporations) for Verizon and AT&T to expand further.
AT&T and Verizon also are not "Masters" of business - they simply BUY everyone and then pa...
If it were that simple then anyone could do it.
Hesse Should Not Say This...
Again, Hesse should have kept his mouth closed. It's a self serving remark coming from him and he had to know that it would not be received well at all.

I Want Sprint to Stick Around
Sprint's inability to compete...
There was a time, which actually wasn't all that long ago, when Sprint was the leading phone company in the country, they had the best network, the best coverage, the best customer service....and they squandered their position through ineptitude, a long history of bad decisions, mismanagement and general incompetence.
It's not at&t or Verizon's fault that Sprint drove customers away by making horrible billing errors, that they wasted money on the Nextel acquisition, or that they let their network go to crap.....
If they want to ...
Hesse knows what he is talking about...
