  2. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    In addition to building towers, they will be buying sites from Sprint and it sounds like other companies as well. Acquisitions are the main push initially it sounds like, construction coming later. If Softbank remains connected with Sprint, this seems like a good thing to me.

    Personally I think the 2CA uplink could be the cause of problems. They likely tested this under config 1, while we are now on config 2 with about 49.7 % slower uplinks.

    I think they would basically buy Sprint's owned tower locations, and Sprint would lease them back at some rate. The lease could be well below market value. This would give Sprint a cash infusion without SoftBank directly investing and triggering them to buy the remaining shares I'm not sure how many locations Sprint owns. Or perhaps they'll just take over Sprint's lease and then sublet it back to Sprint at a discount. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    That was speculation by an analyst and not part of the announcement. Unless he knows something nobody else knows...

    I edited my post... I think I was reading part of your post wrong.

    Hmm... is that FDD+TDD CA? Or is that indicating B25+B25 is on as is B41+B41+B41? It's also possible that 2xCA UL is causing some issues. What happens if you set it to 2xCA or 3xCA (TDD only)?

    CA. I had it on the default before (FDD 2CA+ TDD 3CA + 2CA DL) Sent from my LG-LS998 using Tapatalk

    better explained in the additional source I forgot to list: https://www.wirelessweek.com/news/2017/10/softbank-joint-venture-acquire-8000-us-cell-towers It starts with rooftop leases from Sprint.

    I don't understand your take on the second one. Softbank will invest in a tower company which does not have any towers right now which means that they have to construct them. So how does it freaup capital for Sprint? Maybe I am dense.

    CA or Calling Plus? If CA, which level did you have it set to previously?

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-19/sprint-t-mobile-deal-announcement-is-said-to-likely-be-delayed and in case you missed it: http://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/sprint-parent-softbank-dives-into-u-s-tower-market-ahead-expected-t-mobile-tie-up https://www.wirelessweek.com/news/2017/10/softbank-joint-venture-acquire-8000-us-cell-towers The second one is likely the most important as it would free up capital for Sprint which could be used even if there was not a merger imo. It certainly could make Sprint's balance sheet look better in a merger.

    Ok so I turned off CA completely and I'm yet to loose B41, in a place I normally don't get it. Just an observation. Sent from my LG-LS998 using Tapatalk

    Certainly sounds like it could be software issues. LG is usually pretty decent on this front, looking at the V20 and G5 in the past. The LG G6 has fantastic connectivity, and HPUE has definitely made a difference on fringe B41 signals. I now connect to B41 inside my house on occasion, which *never* happened with any other B41 devices I have owned (no new sites or adjustments in my area).

    Calling Plus? Also, were you able to get your MSL? Curious if the 41D 25A setting actually works.

    You posted this earlier. What people are saying is CDMA is not going to be around a long time. Everything will be LTE, like it or not. I agree that CDMA has great call quality and great ability to maintain the call on the cell fringe. But CDMA will be making way for LTE over the next few years. Once VZ turns it off, then things will get mighty interesting because of economies of scale.

    The same thing happened to me so I picked up the phone and simply reached out to them. It showed up 5 days later.

    I'm still waiting to hear back again from Sprint. I got a call that I was approved, but never received a unit. This was 6-7 months ago.
  24. Mobile hotspot in Extended LTE

    That might be risky, isn't there still Extended LTE non-native roaming as well? The user would have to be 100% sure they are in the correct part of the coverage map that is treated as native roaming before doing this. I think...?

    I have to say, VoLTE seems to be working QUITE well! [emoji3] Sent from my LG-LS993 using Tapatalk

    Good article with open mindedness: By Bronwyn Howell; Are three mobile networks necessarily less competitive than four? https://www.aei.org/publication/are-three-mobile-networks-necessarily-less-competitive-than-four/

    Just remember to use responsibly. You may receive a strongly worded letter from Sprint if you use a ton of Data while roaming.
