spitek writes: I was tipped off to this story by an email looking for a LTE Validation engineer for a "opportunity we currently have available for a RAN Engineer with a major telecommunications company located in Overland Park, KS." which in English is pronounced "Sprint". A little looking and indeed Bloomburg announced the business deal days ago, while others continue the dialogue about what this means to the industry and the future. What are your thoughts? Does this mean Sprint will not be bought by Verizon at some point or just sweeten the deal?
