Everyone loves a horror story, even us shriveled old raisins at Telecom Monthly. And this story has it all, shock, anticipation, and an evil villain. Unfortunately, this is a supposedly true story. The tale of a small company which overpaid on their T1s for years and the big company which refused to help. We don’t really know if this is legit or not, but the guy was upset enough to spring for the domain www.sprint-really-sucks.com and put the effort into explaining his story.
I actually feel a bit sorry for Sprint. They are a carrier in trouble and sites like this really don’t help. But, it does go to show you that a little bad publicity from an upset customer can go a REALLY long way. Someone along the line should have taken care of this guy. Perhaps whoever ends up buying the ailing Sprint will make amends with Allen Harkleroad and pay him to take his site down. Until then, enjoy the zombies:
