No, it doesn't unless you can guarantee the following, with cited sources:

1. The customers that churned had an average monthly revenue that matched

reported ARPU. Unlikely, as the high ARPU is directly attributed to

Sprint's large Corporate base, and would be significantly lower if just

consumer nembers were used.

2. The customers replacing those that left had an ARPU significantly lower

than those that left. In light of the current plan structure, this is

highly unlikely.

3. Actually, in order for it to be a loss, you would have to show that the

ARPU for those replacement customers was $0.

You can try to play your little spin game here- I'll bury your ass so deep

you'll need a Chinese dictionary to ask for help out. You see, unlike you,

who conveniently picks and chooses which numbers he thinks are bad, I get

paid really good money to analyze all of the carriers, and know more about

these numbers than you could ever hope for. So, play your little game- I

would take great pleasure in picking apart your stupidity yet one more time.
