Sprint this morning announced that it will acquire from US Cellular 20 MHz of spectrum in the 1900 MHz band in Midwest markets including Chicago, South Bend, Ind., and Champaign, Ill. It'll also get 10 MHz of spectrum in St. Louis. The moves, which are costing Sprint $480 million, will affect some 585,000 USCC customers

Sprint picking up spectrum, customers in Midwest from US Cellular


I'm gonna join the chorus of AC readers calling for a new stock photo for Sprint. Dan Hesse looks tired and unconfident in that picture.

lol, I think Mr Hesse's tired look is a reflection of the hard work he and his team have put into Sprint. My 14 years as a customer has seen drastic changes. Once upon a time, the phone selections sucked and customer service was hellish. Today, simply put, I am satisfied with sprint's overall service. I ravel a great deal and can arguably say their coverage has worked for me...Cheers Sprint
