Yikes! T-Mobile shouldn't have spoken so soon about deploying 5G nationwide before VZW and AT&T. It'll only be a dozen cities by year end but nonetheless, I wouldn't be surprised if AT&T fast-tracked this roll out just to spite T-Mobile. I'm expecting a similar announcement from VZW very soon.

I know we all love Sprint, and want it to be the best and most reliable network. I'm just wondering as to why Sprint didn't decide to make a crazy announcement of a "5G" network and just skip over 4G? Would this not be possible? Does one have to have a predecessor network in place before a successor network can come to be? I would think that they could have just installed back haul that could support a "5G" network. Would this have been plausible? Did they ever think of doing this and decided that it would have taken three times as long as NV has already? This was just an idea that popped in my head earlier and wanted to start a discussion on it and see what you guys have to say about it.
for Sprint we expect 63K postpaid phone net adds aided by an estimated 40K prepaid( Boost) -to-postpaid migration similar to last quarter.” why spend money on marketing for new postpaid consumers if all you are doing is harvesting your'e prepaid base seems like a waste of money?
Sprint Technical Care has issued a trouble ticket for 4G Data in the 48309, 48307 area (Rochester, Rochester Hills, Oakland University area and Auburn Hills) area.
No report given as to what the problem is or the cause. I'll post back if I find out anymore. Thank goodness someone is listening at Sprint! Let's hope they can actually fix what is wrong.
No I'm talking about a very specific part of a specific state, which neither carrier currently natively serves. Please take a second and go back and read the post, because the last words you left off are very important. " If the merger goes through, that will switch over to T-Mobile's roaming deal with Viaero." Again, this has absolutely nothing to do with Sprint and T-Mobile's separate roaming deal, which almost certainly covers only T-Mobile native coverage.
