"Sprint & Vendors Lagging on LTE Build?"


Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone else saw this article on light reading:

The analyst mentioned in the article states that what was expected to be a large push in the second quarter of orders/builds is being pushed out ot the third quarter. Thoughts?

This is a very bad and very poorly timed article. It is using a lot of really old data and trying to make it relevant to a story now. It is quoting material deliveries from the 3rd Quarter of 2011! Yes, NV did start later in 2011 than originally planned.

 

The schedule information we have provided was compiled well after those initial start up delays occurred. Network Vision has always had a large ramp up in the schedule in the 3rd quarter of 2012. This was to allow for a learning curve of installation, allow planning and permitting to get ahead and give backhaul installs an opportunity to be installed.

 

If Sprint and their OEM's don't increase the production rate next month as it has always been scheduled, then there are going to be schedule issues. However, this article does not address the ramp up that will occur next month with any specific data. If something causes the ramp up to be a problem, then we can start crying.

Biggest problem is context.

 

To make it newsworthy, they shift the context of the report.

 

I wouldn't read into this at all. This is not accurate reporting at all... but they made a headline out of it.

I wouldn't even bother defending... the article is using a report completely out of context.

Yet the stock price dipped a bit :(

 

I hate link-click baiters, and that article is a perfect example.

 

Well, when the market as a hole is down over 100 points, that can happen. Don't forget the big picture. But I see that even with the DJI having a bad day, Sprints still up a over a percent, as of now. They've had a stellar couple of weeks here.

Yep, just saying how it seems Sprint is always on that fence.

 

I can't wait for NV to be complete

I don't really see it significantly improving until NV is is complete.. or at least 50%+.

Entire stock market is taking a beating... sprint has done well lately in the market.

I agree, we watch it daily at work.

I bought Sprint back when it hit 2.50 or so; I knew it was a long-term bet but I'm willing to wait.

 

So far it's paying off. You're up over 25%. We'll see how sprint finishes the week.

Even if it drops back down I'll stick it out. I didn't put my life savings into it though, just money I'm fully prepared to lose if I'm wrong. :)

Just a quick question: isn't NV supposed to be completed by Q4 2013? I thought I heard that announced during some Sprint investors call.

 

My understanding was the final (last of round 4) markets were supposed to be started (not completed) by Q4 13.

The last reference I saw was the final markets will start in December 2013 and finish up around April 2014.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
