Japan In The News: Softbank Acquires Sprint Nextel
Japanese mobile carrier Softbank Corp has just officially announced to buy about 70% Sprint Nextel Corp, the third largest mobile carrier in the US, for $20.1 billion. See the news article from Reuters and others for all the details.
While living in Japan, we used Softbank as our mobile carrier (only voice, no data). When we came back to visit Tokyo last Christmas, we also used Softbank as our cell phone rental company.
