Former Sprint CEO Hesse recounts the 'pain' caused by Network Vision

dan hesseFormer Sprint CEO Dan Hesse told FierceWireless that he regrets causing so much disruption to Sprint customers when the company embarked on its Network Vision network modernization initiative.

Hesse said that despite the disruption, which was greater than anticipated, Sprint's network upgrade laid the foundation for what will be a "spectacular" network. You can read the full FierceWireless interview here.
