Acquisition of Sprint by Japanese company said to be good for users
A New York Times editorial Friday has characterized the likely acquisition of Sprint by Japanese company SoftBank (link) has a likely boon for mobile users, as in this editorial here.
The Times sees this as a bit like Sony owning Columbia Pictures.
It dismisses national security concerns, maintaining that SortBank will use domestic manufacturing and not open the network up to vulnerabilities from China.
Will the ability of users of other networks to connect to Sprint in remote areas (like West Virginia, for me recently) improve some more?
