I know that Sprint's network isn't as good as Verizon's, but it isn't bad in my experience. From unlimited data (5GB) to more minutes than we can use, we couldn't be happier with our plan. Plus, it's much less than we would pay for Verizon, even with an employer discount.
The cowsumers will take it and smile. They will bitch in forums and make general threats about leaving, but they won't.
Consumers don't have any effect if they take what they are fed. If they would make a little noise things would change. Don't place the blame completely on the carriers.
"I know that Sprint's network isn't as good as Verizon's"
I went from Sprint to Verizon and would have to say that Sprint's network was faster and had better coverage than Verizon and AT&T in the places that I travel to. My last employer supplied Sprint phones and my current one supplies Verizon phones. If I were to get a personal phone I would get one from Sprint.

I left vzw for sprint and have had a good experience I am a member of a credit union so it made it cheaper than vzw, and they do nickel and dime you and the prices and plans are way to expensive. Sprints voice network needs a little improvement but that internet works damn good. Now my whole family is looking to get away from vzw cause they see all what my phone does for one set plan price.
