IT'S NOT A MERGER, IT'S A TELCOM TAKEOVER BY T-MOBILE: SO LONG SPRINT!!!
Sunday confirmation of what everybody already knew . . .
SPRINT IS KAPUT AND ALL OF THOSE JOHNSON COUNTY JOBS ARE SOON TO GET AXED!!!
Bright side . . . Maybe the corporate HQ will make a great shoe store.
On a more practical note . . .
KANSAS CITY NOW NEEDS TO FIND NEW SPONSORS FOR THE DOWNTOWN SPRINT CENTER AND THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!!
The reality is that the telcom sector seems to hate this news and this one impacts local by way of rising suburban unemployment numbers along with even worse mobile phone service.
