shaferz Posted September 23, 2013 Share Posted September 23, 2013 As I am in Central IL, we are in an area where Sprint purchased 'spectrum' from USC. As I understand it, USC customers in this area were more or less told that they would need to switch providers. We are fairly rural here. 2-3 years back, USC put up a tower in nearly every down in this area. These are actual USC towers and not owned by one of the tower companies. My question is: Will USC service simply be 'stopped' in this area? If so, what will they do with the towers? My home is located in a town without a Sprint tower, but has a USC tower. Multiple Sprint subscribers here have called to complain and express the need for a Sprint tower here, and the last few that have called have suggested the USC tower (as they were presuming USC would no longer be needing it.) Each call (from what I am told) had the Sprint rep acting very interested - actually asking for the exact street address and/or GPS coordinates of the USC tower location. Everyone has read the numerous press releases and stuff regarding the USC/Sprint deal, and they generally all say that Sprint is not aquiring the towers, and if that is the case... WTF is USC going to do with the towers? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
