Where to find number of customers per market?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knew where you could find how many customers Sprint has in each area? I know in some places in the Midwest the Verizon/Alltel merger really consolidated users to a single carrier.

 

Those are extremely confidential numbers. You can get an idea of the relatively size if you can look up the number of blocks of numbers each operator owns in that area. Not accurate but just a ball park estimate. I used to have a link to a website for that info, but I have no idea where it is or whether it is still alive.

I would love to get a general sense. Can you share general sense of sprint's top markets and lowest markets?

 

Any markets where sprint has more share than verizon or at&t?

Yep, Kansas City.

Seeing my market near the top would be great since my no-4G rants would be more valid.

 

No, it would not make any rants "more valid." Sprint is not rolling out Network Vision based on POPs or market share.

I've always been amazed how Sprint service stops right outside of KC except along major highways. Since they have such a large market share in the region, you think they would cover neighboring towns like Richmond, Lexington, Higginsville, Marshall, etc. People in many communities within 100 miles of KC have to use someone other than their regionally HQ carrier.

Those places you name are in "Missourah." Enough said.

Robert,

 

Having lived in KC for 90% of my life i have thought the same thing. If it was for the former affiliates Roberts & Southwest, even less of the area would be covered. even areas 30 mins from campus (Louisburg) was not covered till 3-4 years ago (thanks to IDEN synergy site. If these smaller towns around KC where covered, then be well over 30%. Southerwestern Bell (now AT&T) and Cellular One (now verizon) Where the originals to the market back in analog days, So seeing where they are at today, tells you how much they have gained but what more can they get with 800 mhz and a little expansion( Back in September they did have service in Marshall, yet not showing up on maps and customer service says it's not there)

I say Missourah, and if someone complains to me about it, I switch to Misery. They like that one even less.

only have OKC, AT&T has almost 50%! then sprint, t-mobile and verizon in last....

 

Yeah we're a pretty big AT&T area but I do see more and more Sprint converts as of lately. They're probably all switching for the same reason I did, (cheaper than dirt postpaid family smart phone plans and unlimited data).

Anything in Louisiana? If you have BR, I'm curious how close I would be with my prediction. ATT - 50%, Verizon - 25%, Sprint - 10%, T-Mobile - 8%, the rest pre-paid

nope have the big easy and it's no where close to what you guessed for Baton rouge

Yeah, in New Orleans, I'm not sure if any 1 carrier dominates the market. Verizon has made a big push there and I think Sprint has a decent share there as well. In BR though, ATT has this market for sure.

    • It would not surprise me if T-Mobile leases UScellular's used spectrum while converting sites for up to a year.
    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
