I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net
I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size
I've been following the network.sprint.com site and just in the past year in South Florida there have been over 700+ upgrades to towers in my area (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) with another like 400+ planned! I've been taking screen grabs and adding them up. I know we are on the second tier LTE launch list but could they be doing the upgrades now? I mean I have noticed the speed on my 3G shoot up from unbearable to quite fast in the past 6 months or so. Also the speed of 3G on my new EVO LTE is about double+ of that on my OG EVO! So are these just a lot of 3G upgrades, normal maintenance, Network Vision or new LTE cabinets? When I choose other cities from the drop-down list they have a quarter of the updates that the towers in my area are getting except for say New York, lol. I've tried 4G LTE on my new EVO LTE with no luck. I remember that before the 4G Wimax launch down here in some areas I could get Wimax on one or two towers in certain locations so I thought they might test like last time. Thanks for any answers in advance.
Assuming 4/1 closing, 180 days to negotiate addendum to agreement, then if they can't agree, 60 days for T-Mobile to exercise purchase option, then 60 days for Shentel to exercise purchase option. Could negotiate something outside the agreement, as we know.
Shentel Boost/Virgin is excluded from Dish sale. Any Dish arrangement does not touch Shentel right now.
Shentel penetration (pre-nTelos) was mid-20%. Some subsets of historic areas are "approaching 50%." Goal is to get to 20% market share when expansion areas are included. Would hope that is easier with T-Mobile brand. Asked to speculate on T-Mobile's share in Shentel areas, estimates it's half of Shentel's penetration.
Asked about Richmond sliver, don't expect much growth here until 2021, and from just before Q&A, noted cap ex is mostly at maintenance level.
Call is over.
