Theoretically thinking!

Lets say the Sprint/SoftBank/Clearwire deal goes through, and Dish is unable to get into the wireless field....do you think Dish will lease its LTE spectrum to sprint/SoftBank or maybe sprint/SoftBank will purchase it?? Idk I'm bored and just thinking of possibilities.

 

 

 

 

Btw - Supposedly sprint had told the FCC today to throw out Dish's request to delay the SoftBank acquisition.

Sprint will most likely ride out the leases for the EBS spectrum. A huge majority of Clearwires "160mhz" are leased spectrum from educational institutions and are not continous across the US like that 40-60 mhz or so of BRS.

 

Also, Sprint & co are not to keen to work with Dish especially since they're throwing a tantrum now after 1) failing to free load off of sprints network vision project by having Sprint deploy for them in exchange for utilizing the service [not helping out in deployment at all] , 2) going after clearwire after Sprint and softbank made their move in december, and 3) going after Sprint itself in order to delay everything and give a headache to Hesse and Son.

I think the PCS H block and 600 MHz auction are more worthy targets for Sprint/SoftBank to purchase than Dish's spectrum.

I am of the strong opinion that Sprint should sell Clearwire to Dish minus the BRS spectrum then go after T-Mobile.

Don't read too much on sprint asking FCC to continue its review. It improve's sprint bargaining position with dish and other offers have little to do with what the FCC has regulatory authority over. It doesn't mean sprint is more or less incline to reject dish's offer.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
