I keep checking all the forums hoping to find out something new from sprint but they have been awfully quiet.


I kind of miss the Clearwire/ SoftBank and Dish days. Yeah it was annoying because we didn't know how the outcome will turn out but other than that it was entertaining



Hopefully we learn more about Triband and more of softbanks vision on the next earnings call.

The next earnings call is only about 3-4 weeks away. I'm bored too and I really want to know the status of the G2, HTC ONE MAX, NEW NEXUS, NEW IPADS, 800 LTE and 800 CDMA deployment on a mass scale and 2600 being added to NV towers.

Dont worry..i truly believe that october will be a strong month for sprint. The Note 3 release on oct 4th will kick things off along with possibly the LG G2 release in late Oct and htc should be announcing something about the htc one max in Oct. Also there are rumors about google hosting an event in mid Oct to talk about the nexus 10, nexus 5 and android 4.4. To top it off, sprint Q3 earnings report should occur by halloween to shed more light on the 800 MHz CDMA and LTE progress.

Sprint isn't just coming back, it is building to be the gold standard once everything comes together. By summer 2014, I can't even imagine how NV will be performing once triband has made its impact and 800mhz/1900mhz/2600mhz is coast to coast.

The clip link should get a sticky. Everyone should watch it. I love the marketing play, it makes sense. Push in 2014 when the nay sayers will be shown the reality of network vision.

I can only hope that Sprint becomes an aggressor in 2014 not just in speed but also in growing their networks.

From what Hesse was saying, 2014 and forward will be a good year for sprint. Most of 1x800 should on for voice also LTE on 800 and not to mention they will be working hard to bring LTE on 2600 nationwide.


Also back haul should be done to so 3G will greatly improve as well

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
