Sprint network outsourcing deal not ‘imminent’

Sprint Nextel is not going to outsource its network management any time soon, according to an analyst from a firm that recently met with Sprint CFO Bob Brust. Brust met Monday with investors at a gathering sponsored by Robert W. Baird & Co.

Sprint is continuing with the 8,000 job cuts it announced in late January, and they appear to be on track to be completed by the end of March.
