Sprint 3rd quarter results

You gotta look beyond the surface, but the numbers are promising. just last year the recapture rate was 27%, and now we have had two quarters of 59 and 60%. The Sprint brand has gone from 46.3 million subs to 52.8 million subs in a year. The nextel platform really messes up their numbers, but I can understand not just dropping all of them at once. 60% recapture rate is very enticing, and I believe it could become even higher as network vision progresses.

Is there something special about 800k subscribers on iDEN? Is it a magic number somehow once you hit it the FCC will let you wield the sword of Azeroth and leigh siege to the Nextel horde?

 

I've been playing too much WOW...

SMR is known as the 800MHz band. 800k customers. Sounds like a magic number to me, lol.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
