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 updated the telecom's "Network Vision" rebuilding efforts, describing a mixed bag of results. "We are behind our original objectives with Network Vision," he conceded, citing the effects of vendor delays and Hurricane Sandy. But 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.
