Sprint has signed an agreement with Altice USA to resell Sprint service as an MVNO. Sprint is calling the deal a first-of-its-kind arrangement, as it will see the companies sharing services. Altice USA is the parent company of both the Optimum and Suddenlink brands, which provide internet, TV, WiFi, and telephone services to a combined 4.9 million customers in various markets throughout the country. Altice is currently building a next-generation fiber network. With the Sprint agreement, Altice USA plans to offer mobile voice and data services under its own brand. What's unique is that Altice will be able to connect directly to Sprint's network. Sprint will provide cellular connectivity to Altice MVNO wireless subscribers. On the flip side, Sprint will rely on Altice USA's broadband platform to help densify its own backhaul network. Sprint believes this differentiated network operating model will benefit both companies and help ease with integrating their services. Sprint may pursue similar agreements moving forward. Terms of the deal were not made public. The move comes just a day after Sprint and T-Mobile said the two wireless companies will abandon merger talks.
