Sprint & NTELOS settle

NTELOS settles with Sprint, shares +9.7% AH 4:24 PM

  • The settlement is related to NTELOS' (NTLS) comprehensive wholesale service agreement with Sprint (S). Financial terms are undisclosed, but NTELOS does state the settlement resolves a data rate dispute going back to 2011, and "historical billing disputes" raised in 2012. (PR)
  • NTELOS says the settlement establishes a basis from which the companies "can extend and expand [their] partnership beyond the current term." NTELOS' shares crashed last month on an FBR report indicating Sprint plans to "overbuild" capacity in Virginia/West Virginia territory now covered by its NTELOS deal.
  • NTELOS expects to record a $9.6M Q3 adjusted EBITDA gain related to the deal, largely thanks to the reversal of an accrual related to its Sprint dispute.

Wow was really expecting an overbuild. Now hopefully ntelos gets its head out of its arse and gets onboard with NV.

Yea me too!! If it doesn't, u better believe sprint will over bulid. They arent messing around with network vision and now that they got a new sugar daddy. They are going to be in good shape in a few year or less :)

I had actually been anticipating an acquisition. I figured the overbuilding rumors were only put out there to prod nTelos into a sale on terms more favorable for Sprint. That may still eventually end up happening, since nTelos is the last participant in Sprint's "Strategic Roaming Alliance", and that is a program Sprint seems to be looking to discontinue.

I don't think sprint would have renewed jack without some reassurance they will also supply LTE demands for us in ntelos badlands.

I wonder if it will affect the NTelos rate structure to customers.  I would hate to think the NTelos customers will have to give up the extra money they can use to get access to the Rooftop Pool full of bikini clad models with a live mariachi band playing.  

 

(That's an NTelos ad for those who haven't seen it lol)

I'm guessing that means they've finally gotten rid of the redhead teen with braces. Or else this ad campaign is really narrowly aimed at the creepster demographic.

This discussion would mean so much more with youtube clips...

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
