Sprint (NYSE:S) has had a rough few years. A streak of massive subscriber losses have bumped the carrier out of the No. 3 wireless carrier spot, while rival T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) has made huge subscriber gains over the same period. Additionally, Sprint is still facing a perception that its network isn't as strong as its competitors' after a rocky network upgrade period a few years ago.
