Sprint – Nextel

We’re the only firm with telecom, real estate and legal experts all under one roof

Sprint is a United States telecom company that provides wireless cell services and is also an Internet service provider. It’s the third largest U.S. wireless network operator as of 2013, and had served more than 54 million customers at the end of the third quarter of 2013. In addition to the Sprint brand, the company also offers wireless voice, messaging, and broadband services. The company is headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas. In 2013, the majority of Sprint was purchased by the Japanese telecommunications company, SoftBank.

Sprint traces its origins to the Brown Telephone Company, which was founded in 1899 to deploy telephone service to the rural area in Kansas. In 2006, Sprint exited the landline business, changing those assets into a newly created company named Embarq, which later became a part of a company named Century Link.

Prior to 2005, the company was also known as the Sprint Corporation, but took the name Sprint/Nextel Corporation when it merged with Nextel Communications that year. In 2013, following the shutdown of the Nextel network and concurrent with the acquisition by SoftBank, the company returned to using simply Sprint Corporation. In July 2013, as part of the SoftBank transactions, Sprint acquired the remaining shares of wireless broadband carrier Clearwire, which it did not already own.

Sprint serves over 54 million subscribers across North American and has access to almost 100,000 cell sites.
