good analysis, but something doesn't add up
I read somewhere that the deal was for the spectrum and subscribers, but not for the equipment (or real estate.)
I wonder what US Cellular could possibly do with all of that equipment. Maybe deploy to their remaining markets.
It seems that Sprint will pay them to keep the network running for a while, until Sprint can get the subscribers moved into their spectrum (as they're all CDMA/EVDO mobiles.) But then Sprint would go deploy new CDMA (in the case of capacity needs) or LTE equipment in existing Sprint site locations?
