  1. Huawei DBS 3900 TD-LTE / Wimax eRAN Equipment The following photographs are pictures of Huawei dual mode capable Wimax / TD-LTE RRU (remote radio units) as part of a DBS 3900 series setup. These equipment were originally made for the Clearwire Wimax deployment and are now being re-purposed via software upgrades to enable TD-LTE capabilities. The Huawei equipment currently used by Clearwire are temporary and will be replaced by one of the TD-LTE vendors (Samsung / Alcatel-lucent / Nokia Solutions & Networks ) in the near future.

  2. Back story of SoftBank:

    Not sure if this was already posted.. but I found it interesting. http://www.technobuffalo.com/2013/10/27/japans-big-three-carriers-explained-softbank/
  3. Softbank investing in Brightstar also

    Stake in Company to grow to 70 percent over the next five years. Japanese carrier SoftBank is eyeing an investment in U.S. phone distributor Brightstar. The deal will see SoftBank take a 57 percent stake in the company for $1.26 billion in cash, and has already been approved by SoftBank's board. Brightstar is a name you may not have heard of before, but is one of the biggest phone distributors (acting between manufacturers and retailers) with a presence in over 50 countries worldwide. The deal will make Brightstar the exclusive distributor of handsets to some SoftBank affiliates, presumably including Sprint here in the U.S. Along with its investment in Sprint, SoftBank's stake in Brightstar could give it a better foothold on securing the latest devices for its carriers. The deal is still in need of regulatory approval, but is expected to close by the end of 2013, the companies said. http://www.androidcentral.com/softbank-take-57-percent-stake-phone-distributor-brightstar-126-billion Will this improve the phones available to Sprint if it is approved?
  4. Possible Sprint Int'l expansion (?)

    Supporting article: http://www.kansascity.com/2013/09/06/4461371/international-expansion-for-sprint.html If SoftBank/Sprint were to expand into Canada and Mexico, and offer Unlimited Roaming Data, with a an industry first Transnational voice+text+data Plan, wouldn't that be the most amazing thing ever? What would those specifics be? Isn't there still a CDMA1x network still in operation in Canada? Couldn't Sprint buy out that network? Rundown of Canadian Wireless Industry = Not Good - http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/6803/125/ And in Mexico, a CDMA1x/EV-DO carrier is still active, with an iDEN network as well... The 2.5Ghz frequency is has been open for business in Mexico for quite some time... Will Sprint buy that too? It it available for telecom use in Canada? My post is not well thought out. I don't want to take the time to research compatible frequencies. So help me out. I have the idea, now as a community, help build out this transnational vision!
  5. Being as most other countries never had unlimited data and now sprint is the only carrier with truly unlimited data, what speculation is out there that if the Softbank merger goes through we will continue to receive unlimited data.
  6. http://vrge.co/132w484 Still need the FCC and DoJ to confirm the deal, but one down, two to go!!! I really hope the shareholders approve the softbank deal, as it is the best thing for the company, long term.
  7. Looks like it's pick on Sprint day. http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/29/3928968/us-justice-department-asks-fcc-to-defer-sprint-softbank-merger
  8. "So you could argue that SoftBank’s ability to smack down bigger rivals like NTT-DoCoMo and KDDI did not hinge on the one-time surprise attack it staged in 2007. SoftBank has been able to keep its bigger rivals on the defensive through half a decade, introducing a variety of new pricing and marketing strategies." "If SoftBank does acquire Sprint (S) and/or Clearwire (CLWR), the obvious U.S. analogs to NTT-DoCoMo would be AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ)." http://www.bgr.com/2012/10/12/softbank-sprint-acquisition-analysis/
  9. Japan'a Softbank in talks to buy more than a 2/3rds stake in Sprint! http://www.cnbc.com/id/49370595 http://www.cnbc.com/id/49370748 - update
