True. But he is also stepping down and that's why he was given that. T-Mobile CEO will run the new Sprint.

Dan Hesse needs to be fired. He's primarily the reason why Sprint is so screwed up. Him and the current Sprint administration need to go if they want to turn Sprint around.
I was with Sprint for almost a decade and only when Dan Hesse became CEO did the network start to collapse either with poor administrative projects or poor pricing. The only value I ever saw with Sprint was with their family 1500 plan and it was a very competitive plan. Yet Sprint saw ways to screw that up with their 10 dollar "4G" tax. They turned a competitive plan to one that cost just as much as Verizon/ATT without the network behind it. On top of that, year after year they raised the "administrative charge" It went from $0.75 a line to $2.50 a line currently. Sprint needs to get its head in the game.
And with their new framily prices, somehow their prices are currently the same as their previous plan but they don't give you subsidized phones? Yeah okay....
And now they're starting to throttle unlimited users so "unlimited" isn't unlimited.
I'm sorry, but Sprint is hemorrhaging for a reason and that's because of **** poor management. In 2013, they lost customers, their network improvements were delayed, but the CEO got a huge raise?
If Mr. Son really wants to improve Sprint he can start by firing every person involved in Sprint administration. There's absolutely nothing good I can say about Sprint that has resulted from Dan Hesse becoming CEO and any of his policies.
What further aggravates me is their lack of foresight into the future with their technology. Going from the HTC Evo 4g (wimax) to the galaxy nexus (LTE) and to the Nexus 5 (NV and Spark,) I was forced to buy a new phone with each iteration of network "improvements" due to their uncertainty in the technology they would like to invest in.
And I found most of Sprint's phone to be bathed in the most bloatware. Sprint ID, Sprint Nascar, Sprint TV, sprint radio etc etc. My god, does anyone want this crap?
Sprint's downfall is mainly due to the idiotic Dan Hesse who was blessed with a $50 million salary.
And yes, he is stepping down, but he'll still be part of administration. This guy needs to be FIRED if Sprint wants to go places.
Whereas Tmobile has the possibility of becoming the number 3 carrier this year. Sprint should have token Dan Hesse's "raise" and invested in their network if Mr. Son knew what he was doing.
