I don't like the direction that he is taking pushing the "Video" aspect of wireless more than the mobile aspect. Keep the phone company a phone company....He just want's the spectrum......

Let him have it. I think Son should bid T-Mobile up then withdraw and leave Charlie holding the bag.

He may actually want the infrastructure more, so he can get his spectrum deployed faster.

Meh... I can't see DT selling to Dish, I doubt Charlie will give them a high enough offer.

 

Also, if you value TMo as a disruptor, I can't see Charlie Ergen keeping TMobile's current pricing structure in place. I can only see him raising prices.

SprinT-Mobile is unlikely to happen as I don't think the FCC will go for that. That said I tend to think Fraydog is right, Charlie is probably not willing to cough up enough cash for T-Moblie (though I think the FCC would go for it).

dish and sprint are working together.....

Charlie wants in ... If charlie knows sprint wants tmo AND goes and gets it... That "trial" thing with dish/sprint will be cut or raised really high in price for charlie.....

Sprint CAN EASILY (maybe a little exaggerated) get by fcc. Sprint can get the merger ... Say charlie will be the 4th carrier, and whatever spectrum sprint doesnt want/need will be what charlie gets...   Charlie can then start his wireless company

 

The fcc wanted 4 carriers,was yes of course it better for comp.

2 small carriers will never be able to keep up with 2 BIG carriers... Time will eventually run out on the 2 small ones, which is what we have been witnessing the last 5 years with tmo/sprint. We all know if tmo/att went through it would have been wriiten in stone that vzw/sprint was next. The while the fcc might not want tmo/sprint... its obvious they cant compete with the big 2... While they are trying, the honestly cant put a dent into the other 2.

 

Charlie wants in bad, let sprint and whoever merge, and then let charlie in =4

Consumers care most about price and coverage/dependability.

 

If sprint and tmo want to compete with att/vz, they will have to offer better service at LOWER prices to get people to take the trouble to SWITCH.

 

People who already hate att/vz, may have more motivation to switch without a big price difference.

 

But for everyone else who tolerates or even prefers att/vz, to get them to switch sprint/tmo will have to provide some other carrot besides unlimited data at the same or similar price.

The combined companies would preserve four national wireless players, add tons of spectrum to T-Mobile's arsenal and the combined company would have more clout to participate and bid at any upcoming 600 MHz auction.

 

The value of Dish' spectrum has more than doubled since 2008 and will likely grow with the addition of the H block.

You mean Sprint's arsenal, right?

The more I think about this, I cant see any buyout of tmo that does not include Dish. There will be considerable overlapping sites between tmo and sprint. Rather than decommissioning lease agreements, etc... why not structure a buyout that automatically spins overlapping sites to dish? Partner that with a site sharing agreement for sites where sprint was not represented, perhaps offering charlie usage and reasonable spectrum sharing. Charlie would avoid revenue sharing or cost exchange in the places where sprint and tmo had identical coverage. Spectrum would be a mess to sort out who gets what, but FCC approval becomes more likely

They could sell T-Mobile's network to Dish sans spectrum and customers, of course. It will take a bit of time to transition the spectrum from T-Mobile's network to Sprint's. Meanwhile Dish could be deploying their spectrum and EBS on T-Mobile's network. The FCC has their 4th network, the tower companies don't lose a customer, DT is out of the US market, Softbank has their competitive carrier. I see it as a win-win-win-win scenario.

In order to buy T-Mobile they will have to come up with $20+B for DT shares and then have to take over about $15B of debt. Does Dish have enough clout to borrow that kind moolah? T-Mobile just raised some debt to purchase 700MHz spectrum from Verizon and others as well as raise $1.8B in a stock sale.

These transactions require the suitor to finance such a deal.  They will approach banks to garner the capital needed.

      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.

      Had not seen a thread for this yet, 
      I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
      I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
      The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
       
      I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
       
      I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
       
      What are everyone's thoughts?

      Hi,
       
      (To moderators) Please move this thread if you think it fits better in another category. Thanks.
       
      So I noticed Sprint recently deployed B25 at the tower near(ish) my house (located in Northern Virginia). I'm picking up B25 intermittently on the top level and outside. Even without B25, I am satisfied with the quality of service in my area.
       
      The one thing I wish Sprint could do is stay more up to date with the new BlackBerry phones. I like my Q10 but am bummed they never released the Z10 or Z30. There has been a tweet or two from Mr. Claure hinting there may be a new Sprint-BlackBerry release coming. This could be referring to the Classic or upcoming Leap, but it's anyone's guess at this point. Sprint has been pretty cautious in recent years about releasing BlackBerry phones. I'm not sure if that is going to continue now and into the future.
       
      T-Mobile is in talks with BlackBerry about selling their phones again. Even without this, there is the ability to bring an unlocked phone to TMO because they are a GSM carrier.
       
      So, I bought a used Z10 off of eBay last night. I'm going to purchase a prepaid plan and try the service for a month. But, I'm expecting TMO's service to be satisfactory as well.. I have a tablet that can connect to TMO's network and the service is pretty good overall.
       
      What should I do? In your opinion, is there advantage to one carrier or the other?
       
      I'm going to also post this on CrackBerry. Perhaps this post would be somewhat more relevant there.
       
      Thanks,

      Sprint will guarantee $200 per mobile device trade and up to $350 per line of ETF/Installment payments per line. Shifting towards competing more and more against T-Mobile:
