Actually the contract expires in 2013 with a 2 year extension at the end. However since Sprint is still depending on ClearWire for it's LTE buildout depending on how that goes and how much money Virgin is making on WiMAX devices they may still stick with it for awhile longer. It's a cheap and mature technology. If it's making money there's little incentive to migrate all of Boost and Virgin customers to LTE. I actually think that Sprint will get rid of the overpriced Virgin name and bring us in as it's own branded prepaid service before 2015. Doesn't make fiscal sense to have the overlap and redundancy from running 2 mvno's.
