Business 2.0’s Matt Maier and our comrade in arms, occasionally referred to as GigaOM Mini in his wonderful Wireless Report does an autopsy of SK-Earthlink MVNO with the deftness of CSI crew.

SK-EarthLink will try to reach that goal without spending a dime developing its own infrastructure. Instead, the upstart carrier will rely on Sprint and Verizon Wireless to provide the backbone for its wireless offerings. It will pay the carriers a per-minute fee each time one of its customers makes a phone call or streams a video broadcast. SK-EarthLink will also integrate Wi-Fi into its devices, drawing on Dayton’s experiences at Boingo Wireless, the nation’s largest Wi-Fi hotspot aggregator.
