Sprint’s revenue beats estimate as network upgrade progresses

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Sprint Corp <S.N> reported higher-than-expected second-quarter revenue on Wednesday, as the company expanded its high-speed coverage and came closer to completing a network upgrade that had caused a massive drop in its customer count.

The company, which is 80 percent owned by Japan’s SoftBank Corp <9984.T>, said it earned $23 million, or 1 cent a share, in the second quarter, following a loss of $1.6 billion, or 53 cents a share, a year earlier.

Revenue fell to $8.8 billion from $8.9 billion a year earlier, but beat the average analyst estimate of $8.7 billion according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
