Sprint Nextel will retain its unlimited data packages, at least for the foreseeable future, CEO Dan Hesse told analysts Thursday after the carrier reported earnings. Hesse also gave an update on the telecom's "Network Vision" rebuilding efforts, describing mixed results. "We are behind our original objectives with Network Vision," he conceded, citing the effects of vendor delays and Hurricane Sandy. Executives said Sprint appears to be ahead of schedule in deploying Long-Term Evolution service on its iDEN network's 800 MHz range as the carrier moves its Nextel customers off the spectrum.
