Given Sprint’s substantial portfolio of wireline services, and the sell-off of their prepaid services and spectrum to Dish, approval by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will very likely result in significant enterprise disruption in both wireless and wireline services. Since it will also give Dish entry into the wireless services market it will more likely create four major players, not just three.
