Sprint Nextel, Embarq to announce MVNO deal

Not surprisingly, Sprint Nextel spinoff Embarq is planning to announce an MVNO relationship with its former owner to offer mobile service in most of its local service territories to consumers and small business customers.

Embarq became a separate publicly traded company on May 18 and is offering long distance, DSL broadband service and video services via a partnership with Echostar.
