Found an article while looking at Sprint's stock quote on CNN. The article actually doesn't completely bash Sprint, and they recognize the potential that Sprint has to be the best network in the US in the next few years. Pretty interesting read (even though its not like all of us on this site didn't already know about everything that is written in the article).

No doubt Sprint has the potential.  They have the best spectrum position out of any carrier.

 

The billion dollar question is - can sprint execute?  They are finally moving at a pretty good clip, if they can accelerate their plans and really move faster on getting voice/LTE on ESMR and then backfill with capacity using EBS/BRS in areas that see heavy traffic, they would be unstoppable.  Nobody could compete.

Still I wouldn't want  a Sprint partnership with Dish. They tried to sabotage the Softbank and Clearwire deals. Uncle Charlie and wall street should go after T-Mobile, and leave Sprint the heck alone.

I'm sure SoftBank will execute on this

Sprint needs to avoid DISH at any cost!

 

Cue Bigsnake in 3...2...1...

"Sprint needs to divest 60 MHz of EBS to Dish and merge with T-Mobile STAT!" If that happens, can Dish get the ARPU ghetto subscribers? :lol:

I think you may have even got that wicked Massachusetts accent down too! :P

 

Bigsnake, I kid. All in good fun! However, I cannot mask my contempt for Charlie Ergen. That is something deep rooted.

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:  Edit:  Two more confirmed locations of conversion sites:  T-Mobile eNB 875316 Location: 40.7314623618499, -73.82849493999701   T-Mobile eNB 875868 Location: 40.75304305996773, -73.85311593221213
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
