No doubt New Tmobile since I am already a Tmobile customer.  Tmobile and Neville having access to 2.5 GHz spectrum is going to be great for their network and the way Tmobile gets things done.

Hell maybe with the help of Tmobile we can get 800 MHz LTE available in the Southern California markets at some point in the future.

I voted New T-Mobile. The combined network will be major competition to AT&T and Verizon. Especially here in Chicago where it'll clearly be the best network.

That's already happening. Sprint is in the process of getting 800 equipment deployed in the southern IBEZ, and the spectrum should be clear by the end of the year, with various launch times along the border. I don't think even T-Mobile could have sped up the process with Mexico and public safety entities to get the spectrum properly reorganized.

I would stay, with having more phone options and fix some issues Sprint doesn't do well with and were T Mobile does great.

I pay less than $130 all in for seven lines with tmo, so def staying there.

Whichever is cheapest. Being in California both AT&T and Verizon have pretty excellent service. T-Mobile and Sprint are the ones that need to catch up. 

By the way, does everyone think ProjectFi will stick around? Will T-Mobile and Sprint continue their current agreement with Google?

I have hookup -20% off for the account for life - it was a promo they ran last year for friends and family of employees and I have taken advantage of two add a free line promos. We also have two lines that always get kickback - $10 off if they use less than 2gb of data.

I was involved early in the process of the 800Mhz rebanding. If Sprint had some money left over from the merger which they didn't, the process would have gone a lot faster. Just sayin...

I hope your right but let’s say the merger is approved. What would T-Mobile do with b26 ? Since B12 and 600mhz is practically in SoCal ? It seems like almost a waste of Sprint deploys it

It's still spectrum that can be aggregated with B25 to improve speeds. More spectrum = more capacity. Never a bad thing.

But wouldn’t T-Mobile shut down B25 and 26 ? I thought they would rollout 5G on B41 and 600mhz. At least that’s what I gathered from the press conference last week unless they keep all of Sprints holdings for LTE for quite some time

Why on Earth would they shut down B25 and B26? That's the backbone of Sprint network, and will serve to bolster T-Mobile's network. They can easily incorporate the PCS holdings into their own, creating wider LTE channels (think 20x20 in PCS) across more of the country.

B26 includes Cellular block too.  It could be used to widen Cellular A block channels.  B26 could be kept and could be useful if there is a US Cellular or Commnet purchase.  Or traded for B12/B17 spectrum.  Or keep it as a Low Band 5x5 backup channel.

    • Those FCC docs are all in place to "sell" the idea of the merger. So you better believe they are over blowing all of Sprint's inadequacies (and T-mobile's for that matter) There's no question that they can both go at it alone (T-mobile especially) it would just not be nearly as fruitful from a business stand point. 
    • I'm still waiting for my notification, I can't wait.  I've used a bunch of 3rd party apps for this, but nothing was "silver bullet" Did you get a Messages upgrade?  Wondering if the version i have is compatible.  I'm on 3.3.044
    • It was honestly shocking to see Sprint officially put in writing what my suspicions have been in terms of their network plans and business sustainability going forward. Marcelo put a pretty face on it for a long time in terms of a “five year turnaround” plan, but it’s now clear that the marketing and messaging around that was to buy time/room to get to this point in time for a merger to happen. The stuff/figures in the redacted portions of the FCC Filing must also present a pretty bleak picture on Sprint, if the unredacted text reads as is.
    • Could be with M-MIMO equipment being tested. But most likely an event going on.  Try to get a closer shot of the rear and connectors.
    • Didn't think it was sprint. And I haven't noticed any other equipment present in the area but I'll walk around lunch time to see if there is anything else.  I'm still connected to the standard Clear B41 site. could it be possible they are replacing it and wanted to have a back up solution to pick up the weight of the tower being offline?
