ESPN: The new carrier agreement that Verizon has reached with Sprint is a major victory for Verizon.
We’re pleased that the agreement allows us to continue providing our subscribers with the same level of service and value that we’ve always offered.
We will continue to provide our customers with the most competitive rates in the industry and are committed to working with Sprint to deliver a truly great deal for all of our customers.
The agreement is the result of a lengthy and thorough process involving the parties, and we expect to see continued progress over the next year as we continue to negotiate the terms of the agreement.
In the near term, we expect that Sprint will begin implementing the terms and conditions of the new agreement in the next few weeks.
In 2018, Sprint is scheduled to enter into a contract with AT&T.
We believe this will provide us a significant competitive advantage for the next several years, which will allow us to compete more effectively with our competitors.
We continue to believe that a robust, sustainable carrier ecosystem and strong network will be critical to our continued success in the telecommunications industry.
We look forward to a strong relationship with Sprint and look forward, in the coming months, to working closely with them to achieve a successful outcome for our customers and the carrier.
