  1. The top is Sprint. That tower is a cross the street from a mall. There’s a crap load of other things in the area including a IKEA and a Top Golf that’s going to open in the fall.
  2. I’m not sure what carrier these belong to but my God. That’s some serious equipment sitting on the bottom level on the pole I passed in Columbus OH. The picture doesn’t do it any justice https://imgur.com/gallery/cc2PWtC
  3. To add to the document that was posted above this post, Sprint has made a statement on the 2.5 news today. https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/ebs-portions-2-5-ghz-band-headed-for-big-update-at-fcc
  4. That's very true. I figured they would be barred or something from buying more based on how much they are currently sitting on that's unused.
  5. cool. If some does indeed get auctioned, I wonder if Sprint would be allowed to participate given the amount they already have and certainly haven't used.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Was it confirmed that the talks were official or here say rumors? I haven’t looked into it besides what hit yesterday. if Son doesn’t want Sprint alone, then why would he go the way and fold them up into T-Mobile. Plain and simple the Sprint brand would be dead. A partnership makes more sense with another company that can complement and benefit Sprint. If Sprint goes, prices are going up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I would rather for Sprint and T-Mobile not to merge. Sprint however could use a partnership with a cable company. I just feel like Tmo and S merging is to bail sprint from building out their network and Tmo a bailout for 5G. How it currently stands, T-mobile would be the Sprint of 5G. I would say let them keep beating down the doors of the FCC to have that auction for that high band spectrum. They’ve grown arrogant over the past few years. Sprint has the tools in hand for 5G and making their network really rival the big two but as we all know on here the execution with Sprint has not been the best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    See...now this is when I just put my hands up with Sprint and there “network” plans if this indeed true. Sprint will probably bend more to T-mobile this go around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Did Sprint or Mobilitie get fined for something like this before a year or so ago?

  11. Look like Verizon gets to keep all the MMWave spectrum that T-Mobile was trying to make the FCC block http:// https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mobileworldlive.com/featured-content/top-three/fcc-refuses-to-block-verizon-mmwave-licence-transfer/amp/ So now what’s next T-Mobile? But I believe they have some but it’s in different places if I’m not mistaken. Sprint has their high band for 5G, ATT has theirs as well as Verizon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. http:// https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/verizon-facing-more-opposition-to-straight-path-spectrum-purchase Sounds T-Mobile is start to stomp their feet and pout about Verizon buying up Straight Path and their Nationwide MmWave. It’s not FAIR!!! Lol!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Neither is Verizon. I’ve seen atleast 2 towers get built in the area.
  14. Yeah, the network is only one piece. The network could be better than Verizon but no one will care because of the reputation the Sprint name has attached to it. Sending out devices to top reviewers, or even a test drive like program would possibly need to be done to show people that the network is on par or even better than their competitors.
