Just listened to Dr John Saw’s interview at CES

I have to admit, it’s somewhat encouraging network wise for 2018. I’m not overly excited becuase we all know Sprints execution is laughable but if they can expand the network plus continue to densify and add all the bands on all the existing and new towers then they should be back in business. They should have done this back in 2014 but at least it’s getting done. My question is how much expansion are they doing. He mentioned neighborhood expansion just outside coverage areas as well as location destination spots that typically sprint doesn’t provide service to that would get new coverage. My guess is it would be decent expansion when it’s all said and done but nothing overly dramatic. Also, I would love B26 and small cells to takeover SoCal all 2018 but I know I’m dreaming.

Blame the Mexican “FCC” and lack of vision for SCal

You can't play the blame game on this one. The SMR band was never intended for wideband usage. Roadblocks were to be expected.

Same can be said for many new bands. As long as there still is movement on some portions of the border I advise patience, as difficult as it may be. I do wish Sprint would be more forthcoming, but action is best.

Hopefully they’re planning thousands of sites for new coverage. They also need to keep rolling out small cells, and should be calling businesses EVERYWHERE to send a Magic Box.

It’s do or die time for Sprint, and they need to keep both the momentum and money flowing in the right direction.
