Perfectly said! Couldn't of put it more eloquently! Entner is an just an "analyst"... not a network engineer. Like our buddy (Craig Moffet) at the other investment firm who constantly thinks he knows what is what with Sprint and T Mobile and is constantly putting out mis-information time and time again. 🙄 (Huge rolling eyes!).... LOL. Philly is a sort a test market for T-Mo re-configuring and deploying Sprint's spectrum, from what I understand. It's not "temporary deployment".... I think T-Mo is totally going through it and and setting it up as a core New T Mobile region. Just my thoughts. I think we'll know more in a week or two.
Yeah, both Virgin Mobile and Boost are MVNOs nothing to do with core. Now Altice is a facilities based MVNO which means that at some point all data and voice is routed over Altice's core. Nextel???? It is true that Sprint still has legacy CDMA that is routed over it's core but T-Mobile's HSPA+ is also routed our its core network. I think he's just talking out of his behind.
