Gary Forsee-Ya Later

  1. Forsee, for good or for bad, was willing to bet the company on WiMAX. Unfortunately the shareholders weren’t convinced. Chasing Verizon and AT&T on their terms (in an increasingly integrated telecom environment), is an obvious death by a 1000 cuts. I see only two choices: 1) sell the entire company; or 2) sell off the pieces to fund a much smaller WiMAX company.

  2. Forsee or no Forsee, Sprint has a great opportunity to change the rules with WiMax; both from a technology perspective and in terms of Sprint’s business. Hopefully the Board (and Whitworth) won’t be blind to that opportunity (which requires foresight and patience). If all they (and the new CEO they bring in) are interested in is Sprint’s short-term market valuation, and they simply try to compete head-on with Verizon and AT&T, the rest of Sprint’s (likely short) existence will be bloodied and painful.

    I agree. Forsee is a genious and WiMax is the future. Perhaps Google will acquire Sprint . . .

  4. Thank God the board came to it’s senses. Gary Forsee made bad decisions at Sprint that cost good people their jobs, the stakeholders money, and the company image problems.
