CTIA 2006 -- A Sprint Nextel executive said during a discussion this morning that his company doesn't expect to add many new mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) in the near future. Currently Sprint is the leading US carrier for MVNO agreements, including pioneering the space with Virgin Mobile.

A few well financed MVNOs are slated to begin service on the Sprint network soon, including Disney Mobile and Helio.
