    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    This merger is pretty much approved in my opinion. ATT and Verizon are making moves on their data plans which indicate this. Verizon got three plans: Go unlimited 80/mo with only 480P video Beyond unlimited 90/mo (720P video) Above unlimited 100 dollars/mo And if you want 1080P video you need to chime in 10 dollars extra Meanwhile, ATT is forcing unlimited users to buy skinny TV bundled plans. Once the merger is approved I think Verizon will raise the price of their Beyond and Above unlimited plans...... because of 5G.

    The NYC tests also include at least half of New Jersey and the suburbs. Those areas still need a lot of work, plus you add the Altice small cells stuff I think better results down the road, but with this merger thing going we will never know how great the network will get if this transaction close by the first half of 2019.

    What piss me off is they gave up all the company away without having any veto power in the board but hey at least they made Pink Mobile to pick the whole 36 billions of debt. This power play was designed by the Japanese banks, they made Son squeeze hard.

    It means both managements were in cahoots. Sprint for years was fighting hard to secure a 30mhz spectrum reserve in that 600mhz auction just at the last minute to bounce of planning to participate in that said auction and let Tmobile alone go for all of it. The whole merger thing was happening behind the scenes it just they needed to make it official to the public after a new administration was established. They are not stupid, they waited that a new antitrust chief was appointed in the DOJ. Another reason to block this merger.
  5. Marcelo job is done which was to cut the fat and get the company leans for a merger or sale.

    If Softbank didn't own over 84% of the stock they would be massive class action suits against Sprint right now. They always were lying during their earning calls, there was never a turnaround for this company because that mean investments on your network. You could tell that Son never had an interest in fixing Sprint otherwise he would have made the investments on the network including getting into the 600mhz auction to get expansions and VOLTE rolling. Instead, he went on a credit card spending spree on a chip and robotic company hell he even invested in Uber too. Softbank could find a lot of money to buy ARM, but they couldn't invest at least 5 billion yearly in the Sprint network. In order to keep frustrated customers, they came with an inexpensive band-aid fix in the Magic Box. Claure cut so much out of Sprint that he even closed call centers located here in America thus customer service started to take a hit. I hope the DOJ blocks this merger then it would force Softbank to sell Sprint for half the price to a cable company. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/regulators-probing-t-mobile-deal-162152132.html

    The stock price is tanking today on the fear that less than 40% of this merger getting approved by the DOJ.

    Gunther was called to the office and was told the company strategy is to merge with Tmobile, and a combined company wouldn't keep him as the head of network technology. After that, he probably handed his resignation one week after digesting the news. The same thing happened with the CFO, and he also cashed out and bounce back to Europe. They are hammering the headquarter issue a lot because they know deep down this merger will kill jobs and the DOJ wouldn't like that

    Marcelo is pretty much gone. Softbank put him on the boards of its various businesses. Claure is going back to Miami since that is what he really wants. He was brought in to cut Sprint fat and reduce expenses which he did now he will get paid handsomely. They will keep their Overland Park campus open for a year just to avoid PR problems. However for the last year so Marcelo has been shopping around half of the campus because is too big. This merger has been on the making since 2013, and there was never a strategy of making Sprint competitive and healthy for the long term, the s plan was merger from the start.

    This is a done deal. Both of these CEOs wouldn’t make a joint public appearance to announce this unless they got the green light from the DOJ and FCC. If the DOJ comes with an announcement about “we will review this traction if it makes sense for American consumers” then this is a done deal.

    Finally, this is over and I don't think they would go through this a third time unless they got guarantee approval from the DOJ. Marcelo traveled to D.C several times the last few months with the smoke screen about removing regulations for small cells approvals. His visits were basically to the F.CC and DOJ. Just my two cents.

    Hey let’s announce dual headquarters just to trick the DOJ that we won’t kill high paying jobs when in reality one of the reasons of this merger is to save billions on labor. This thing will happen unless the DOJ shot it down but it will be a win win to T-Mobile regarless because Sprint management will halt all deployments as soon this transaction is announced. Massa Son is the ultimate vulture capitalist. Having said that all the signs were there from the start. Marcelo was brought in to cut the fat and get the company ready for a merger.

    The same case they used in 2011 with ATT and the same case they used in 2014 with both of these exciting companies.
  14. Wells Fargo the last supporters of Sprint are throwing them under the bus since they haven’t seen any action from from them. I am eager to look at the quarter earnings and how much they spent this past quarter, but what will open my eyes is quarter one which close in June. That will tell me if little Massa is starving Sprint again in hope of getting that merger with T-Mobile.

    For those that think that T-mobile going into the fall and be successful in the high band auction, they are delusional. The fact of the matter is the reason why they were successful in the 600mhz was due to Verizon and T sitting out something that will not happen with the next auctions. Also, Verizon is telling phone manufacturers to put the 3.5ghz radios in their products by year end which tell me Verizon will go after the 3.5ghz band with a vengeance. There are only 150 MHz in the 3.5ghz, cable companies, Verizon, AT&T, and Google want a piece of it. These companies that I mentioned have deep pockets and Tmobile will just be bringing a knife into a gun fight. Sprint should be deploying the massive MIMO radios everywhere while its competitors are busy with high band auctions.

    And this is why I would refuse a merger now. Sprint doesn't need Tmobile but CAPEX. With 5G approaching and all the small regional carriers like US cellular lacking 5G spectrum, they will be forced to sell once and for all.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Tmobile has 30 billion in debt now due to the acquisitions of 600mhz and 700mhz spectrum over the last 3 years however investors and Wall Street don't care because the company is profitable and it has the capacity to pay its bills. Also, the company is adding more postpaid customers than the other three combined every quarter. What Marcelo did after getting appointed as CEO of Sprint in 2014 spend billions on cut and half promotions instead of investing in their core product which is the network. Then after burning a few billion Softbank engaged in talks with Tmobile about merging and the DOJ shot it down. I just wonder what is Son and Softbank are trying to do here because at the end of the day the Germans want the combined company for themselves. Deutsche Telekom wants Sprint customer base and the 204mhz of the spectrum but doesn't want any part of the 36 billion debt that Sprint is carrying. Had Sprint would be investing around 4.5 billion on CAPEX for the last 4 years they would have a nationwide good network and would have leverage on any M&A discussions.

    According to the Financial Times Softbank was the one that started the talks about a merger again. So it seems that since Softbank has over 135 billions in debt that the board is forcing little Massa to sell unprofitable assets. They will unload Sprint to T-Mobile and they will be happy to take 25% in a combined company.

    Like I said Little Massa went on a spending spree for the last 3 years putting Softbank further in debt. Now the banks like Mizuho which I am very familiar with who happens to own a stake in Softbank wants them to unload unprofitable assets. Guenther leaving or kick out when he is more needed regarding the launch of Massive MIMO and 5G sent a red flag through my spine.

    Funny these talks just when the new quarter is about to start regarding spending over 6 billion on CAPEX. Pink Mobile needs the 2.5ghz band for 5G and they are desperate for new spectrum.

    All that will be on hold like it has been for the last 3 years.

    I think this time it will happen, and anyone that is experiencing terrible coverage better port now because the current Sprint will not fix it.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Little Massa Son has gone on a spending spree for the last few years putting Softbank in massive debt which the board is now making him sell some of the assets that are not profitable. Brightstar is on sale, and now Sprint will follow.
  24. They will have to wait until November to bid on the new auction if the FCC goes with its plan without delays. This is where Sprint needs to go ballistic and deploy those massive radios.
