Sprint sees churn rate climb as quarterly revenue falls shortShares of Sprint Corp. are up 0.2% in premarket trading after the wireless company posted a slimmer loss than expected for its fiscal third quarter but fell short on revenue and saw its postpaid phone churn rate climb. Sprint recorded a net loss of $120 million, or 3 cents a share, compared with a loss of $141 million, or 3 cents a share, in the year-prior period. Analysts surveyed by FactSet were expecting a 4-cent loss per share. The company posted net operating revenue of $8.08 billion, down from $8.6 billion a year earlier. Sprint's revenue came in below the $8.18 billion that analysts had been predicting. The company saw its postpaid phone churn rate rise to 2.06% from 1.84% in the prior December quarter. "As we await a decision in the state attorneys general lawsuit, I continue to believe the merger with T-Mobile is the best way to deliver the benefits of competition to American consumers," Chief Executive Michel Combes said in a release. Sprint shares have fallen 24% over the past three months, as T-Mobile shares have been near flat and as the S&P 500 has added 9%.
