Sprint's Deadbeat Descendants
"Their whole problem was that they let deadbeats onto their networks," says the program manager of the Wireless/Mobile Services research group at Yankee. "If you sign up too many subscribers with bad payment histories, then you're going to have payment problems."
Entner reckons that other "under-performing" carriers will follow Sprint's example. "I wouldn't be surprised if there's an intense internal review going on at Cingular Wireless at the moment," he says.
