Sprint's Claure: '3 to 5 Years' to Turnaround
Sprint's new CEO says he is only giving himself a limited window to turn around the fortunes of the embattled operator.
Claure has already detailed the ways he expects to do this. Cutting spending at the operator, improving the network and adding enough customers to enable Sprint to turn a profit. Easier said than done of course, and Claure expects more hard work to come at Sprint.

Sprint is also trying to fight off the challenge from a resurgent T-Mobile US Inc. and maintain its position as third-largest carrier in the US. T-Mobile passed Sprint in overall subscriber numbers in the second quarter of this year. (See US Wireless Operators' Q2 2015 Scorecard.)
