With Todays announcement that T-Mobile and Sprint are merging, and the announcement of the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming deal that will survive and will last for four years regardless if the merger is completed or not, which is effect immediately as stated in the conference call and the slides made available. So I thought I'd create this to see if anyone has been able to use their Sprint device on T-Mobile roaming yet. And of course if not, once you do, come back here and say you have. Personally I'm not bothering with anything until after the coverage map is updated again, hopefully to reflect the T-Mobile roaming. And of course if you are able to roam onto T-Mobile what kind of speeds are you pulling, and on what device.
Also for those that are unaware, the T-Mobile Sprint Roaming agreement that was announced as part of todays merger announcement is a roaming agreement for Sprint customers to roam onto T-Mobile for 4 years and takes affect immediately, yes right now, regardless if the merger completes or not. Surely it's a stepping stone to integrating the networks by getting Sprint devices that are capable, which according to the conference call is 20 Million Sprint devices ready to be used on the T-Mobile network full time once deal is approved by the regulators and finally completed.
So I was checking out a Jambox mini and saw this Notification on the webpage! If you switch a line over from another carrier to Framily, they will give you free unlimited for a year! I think I may add a line and see if someone needs a phone! I wonder if this is just a promotion for Target employees.
"Comcast agreed to buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion Wednesday night, swooping in to top a bid by Charter Communications to merge the nation's top two cable companies in a huge media deal, according to a person familiar with the matter."
My personal opinion. If Antitrust Regulators are going to let this type of merger occur, I see no reason why any cellular merger shouldn't occur.
When I woke up this morning to this news, the first thing I said was, "NOOOOOOOOOO". The only thing I hate more than TWC is CrapCast. I just want my WOW back.
There is still at least one up near Peoria (https://goo.gl/maps/okjmqNo83tFa9GNg8) that still has some equipment up. Pretty wild. I looked up info on the setups a few years back... there is a lot of reading folks can do online to read about the history.
Wow that long lines site still has all the original equipment still installed and in good condition. Almost every long lines site in Oregon has at least had the horns removed if not all the equipment removed.
The FCC certifications are designed to deal with RF exposure/output and determine if the device is safe to use. While a lower EIRP from the phone could indicate reduced RF performance, that's not necessarily the case.
I need to figure out if other phones have a feature like LG's "Knock On" and contemplate those as I look at new devices.
