  1. I think those stats that conclude that Sprint is more reliable than T-Mobile also includes those native roaming areas as well and not just Sprints native coverage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I hope all the above. They really have their work cut out for them if they plan to do all of that next year. One thing I do want them to not do is to take the T-Mobile method and just slapping a panel or two up and calling it coverage. There are so many complaints from their users about the B12 rollout and how it was a rush job. By Sprint Adding all 3 bands on all towers alone will make them competitive, especially in rural areas and those users have another option to choose from. If Sprint can pull this network revamp off, they can easily surpas T-mobile in network quality. Sprint has the resources and spectrum to give the other 3 a run for their money. It's either put up or shut up now. I just hope John Saw makes this happen and fast. Time is against them with alot of it being lost due to putting their eggs in one basket thinking a merger was going to happen.
  3. I was just reading this lol. I think this memo sent out was the start of the new Sprint. It sounds like they are able to get get their hands dirty and actually compete.
  4. Jim Hyde is also leaving the company. What is the game plan here going forward with Sprint? Is this this slimming down of roles since they are going to go it alone? https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/sprint-s-affiliates-and-wholesale-president-jim-hyde-also-leaving-company
  5. I really don't know much about Saw but whats really the difference between the two?
  6. And fast lol. I would've had fun with that rep asking is there a timetable as to when it will be available in my area? lol.
  7. In some areas.. what kind of mess is that? I don't think that chat rep is informed well enough. They're making it sound like it's being deployed like a network build lol.
  8. Exactly. It makes no sense at all. They thew a fit even when John said to get the FREE netflix, You had to have the One plan. But I wonder if this Hulu deal is not just limited to UF but to the other plans like UMY and ED1500. If so that right there makes what Sprint is offering better. *edit: the forum topic has been locked on the Tmo Reddit page. The mod threw a jab saying, If you want to talk about it there's a page dedicated to 100% Sprint... lmao.
  9. Very much so. What's funny is the Tmo Reddit is ripping it apart saying it's an inferior service.I personally like Hulu more than Netflix. I'm sure if John offered Hulu it'll be the best move ever. I even saw one comment that TMo doesn't need to hand out free things...umm sir where have you been?
  10. Hmm wow such as short time to sign up so this is a promo pretty much. So I guess we will see a credit for the $7.99 on our Sprint bill.
  11. Dope! i just signed up about two weeks ago. My question would be how this would work? Probably similar to tidal. Add it to your plan, you get a text link to sign up and it gets billed to your Sprint account. I guess the only difference would be the $7.99 that gets billed will be a credit. I wonder too if this Hulu offer is something that will baked into a revamped UF plan with a higher cost since Marcelo stated price increases are coming soon? This would be a good way to get people to switch over to that new plan.
  12. Right. Sprint is technically 5G ready between their 2.5 and Massive MIMO. So with 3CA alone with M MINO, you’re talking almost 1Gbps. But I’m basing that off of the getting 300mbps using just a single 20mhz. I really want Sprint to follow through on these new network plans. This is truly a sink or swim time but I think Marcelo and team are serious since he was beyond honest about the network and convinced Son to give Sprint an actual chance. I think it’s a good time to be on Sprint IMO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I would assume 4xca will be next year as well. I think massive mimo was next year as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It would be very impressive if they do put all three bands in all their towers like Marcelo was saying they are going to do. That would be a pretty consistent network experience. I think the biggest fear from the other three carriers is if Sprint gets their network together and they really tap into their 2.5. If done right, Sprint can really do some damage here in the states.

  15. Agreed. The network would be more consistent. Whereas T-Mobile just slaps b12 on a 2g tower with the signal going in one direction and calling it coverage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
