Other analysts have also highlighted the broader impact of Sprint's deal with Softbank.
"We believe Softbank's investment will spark further consolidation, likely starting with Sprint's acquisition of Clearwire (CLWR)," wrote Jonathan Chaplin, an analyst at Credit Suisse, in a note released on Monday. "New capital from Softbank will enable Sprint to accelerate consolidation of the industry."
Chaplin, who sees the deal as a positive for Sprint and other carriers, has an outperform rating on Sprint.
