A company called Lightyear today announced the launch of a new MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that will offer pre-paid and post-paid cellular phone services using Sprint's network. Lightyear, which has an existing customer base of about 60,000 users, already offers wireline communications. It hopes to expand its reach by offering bundled wireless and wireline services across its footprint in Kentucky. It didn't provide details on its initial batch of phones, nor when the service will go live.

The market should be just a bunch of MVNOs and the carriers should be regulated utilities. Every time I read something like this I get so happy it's coming closer to that realization.
