Better start putting in the orders with the ILECS to get those sites upgrade then, because between the towers with the appalling lack of backhaul and the ILECS dragging their feet, Sprint has a long uphill battle.
Sprint's NV rollout is using fiber, microwave and ethernet as available. Now that Sprint has funding behind it, ATT/VZW doesn't really have any competitive advantage in acquiring backhaul in any given area. All carriers will have challenges with backhaul in some locations but at least now Sprint will be on better footing to get what is needed when needed (or at least as well as other carriers in any given area).
