In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg took a few shots at wireless rival Sprint, saying “I don’t know what Sprint thinks it is.” He seemed to be directing his quizzical comments at Sprint’s decision to offer an unlimited $50/month wireless plan through their Boost Mobile brand, even going so far as to say “eventually it will self-destruct.” Ouch. You’d think that Seidenberg and Verizon would have a different tone when it comes to Sprint. After all, Sprint has been the gift that keeps on giving for Verizon. They’ve been losing over a million subscribers per quarter for the past year or so, virtually gift wrapping a net new subscriber boon for Verizon (and others). Come on Verizon and Ivan, where’s the love?
