Re: Nextel to shutdown end of June

Yep,
Me and the wife were 2 of those that got kicked off iDen a while back.

Is Sprint involved in any way with Boost Mobile? Boost was part of Nextel originally, wasn't it

Sprint owns Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.

There are still about 1.3M iDen users left according to the report. They'll lose half but iDen ARPU is almost half CDMA users so with those they keep, wont be a big revenue hit in the end.

Sprint will bottom out at about 54M users at end of next Q (rest of iDen kicked off) and will likely grow slowly from there but probably not much postpaid growth until LTE rollout complete. When 800Mhz rollout kicks into gear, Sprint will be able to compete better with ATT/VZW, especially if they keep unlimited data.

Sprint bought only VM USA and the Boost Mobile USA brand. Boost is actually a world brand just as Virgin Mobile. They both operate in other countries.

Also if the SoftBank deal goes through they'll be in a great financial position to acquire some 600 MHz spectrum at the next auction.
