Where did Son go wrong in Sprint business?

SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son announces his renewed resolve to see significant improvement in Sprint's business at a SoftBank Group business results meeting.

TOKYO --  U.S.-based telecom carrier Sprint, a recent addition to the portfolio of Japanese powerhouse SoftBank, suffered a setback in total-user rankings as of the end of June, dropping to fourth place behind T-Mobile US.

     In a bid to shore Sprint up, SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son has publicly pledged that he will personally work on rebuilding the company he bought two years ago.
