He is still running things, does not step down till the 3rd quarter.

Oh trust me, Bezos is still running Amazon and will continue to do so. The move was so that he could skirt the calls from Congress on the monopoly inquiries and give that to the new guy to handle. Bezos will always make the big calls.

The article doesn't address what would happen to Sprint if the merger is reversed. Sprint can't survive on it's own. Either way, we'd be down to 3 wireless carriers at some point. In other words, his point is moot IMHO.

Yeah, article is total bilge. CDMA hardly performs on par with current phones, so it’s death was foreordained anyway.

And the idea of reversing approval and expecting POOF- Sprint is back in business? I don’t think they should have required Dish to buy Boost- it was just to hobble Dish with the ole albatross.

Reversing a ten year old approval on FB and WhatsApp? Really? How would you do that? In the real world, not government la-la land. Just goes to show you can never trust the government to keep their word.

Exactly. For Dish to claim that TMO shutting down Sprint's CDMA is harming their prepaid business ignores the fact that ALL carriers are shutting down their legacy networks. I believe VZW has sunset their CDMA network already (or is in the process of doing so).
