    SprintPCS has reached an ammended agreement with Shenandoah.

    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/040525/dctu059_1.html

    http://www.shentel.com/Investors/press.cfm



    In exchange for being fully participating in all SprintPCS promotions,
    Sprint will decrease the amount it charges parent Shentel for "back
    office" functions (i.e. billing).

    Comes out to over $500,000 / year


    With Shenandoah already profitable, I should think it's to their
    advantage to more easily recruit new customers by fully participating in
    Sprint's promotions, so why Sprint should give them a discount for doing
    so is beyond me. But maybe thats why this news was released by Shentel
    and there is no Sprint press release on the story. Not good negotiating
    to pay for something you might not need to pay for.




    Shentel has 89,632 PCS Customers as of 3/31/2004
    Took in PCS revenues of $18,221,000 for the quarter,
    resulting in a profit of $1,161,000


    Shenandoah therefore averages over $67/month per customer, which is
    better than SprintPCS, and probably fully explains why Shenandoah is
    profittable. SprintPCS averaged $61 Q1/2004.

    Simple, I except that Sprint PCS believes them to have an untapped
    market potential that they believe a little investment will net a lot of
    return from.

    Hm.

    Shentel sold some of their property to Verizon about 18 months ago. It
    was a big deal because Verizon had no native coverage in Western Virginia,
    and users there roamed analog on Shentel, which was analog-only. Verizon
    converted those areas to CDMA after purchasing them.,
