Sprint cuts its wires

Sprint has seen telephony's future, and it is wireless. The company, which began its corporate life more than a century ago as as the Brown Telephone Co. in Abilene, Kansas, will dump its traditional landline phone business and focus on wireless communications. The company also plans to align with cable companies to market communications and entertainment megabundles, including VoIP, TV, music and other services delivered on mobile devices. "If we're aligned with cable, we're definitely not aligned with the Bells," said CEO Gary D. Forsee in a recent interview.
