Telenet was sold to GTE. GTE Telenet was combined with GTE Sprint and assets of United Telecom to become US Sprint. When GTE sold their share of US Sprint to United Telecom, United Telecom renamed the entire company Sprint. Verizon has never owned any part of Telenet.

Great story, and an under-reported part of U.S. history. The peer-to-peer, collaborative nature of the journey resonates. It would be a great movie, if done right.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
