Well, results are out. Smaller net loss than expected. But postpaid losses were 231,000 subs while prepaids were a loss of 364,000. Not great.

 

Here's the press release.

Event and Earning in one day, maybe there is double good news.

 

Or, a nice shiny object to distract the street and their irrational behavior.

If they are reporting that early before the market officially opens I can only think good things. Right?

Not really. Sprint always reports before the market opens. All their earnings calls tend to happen at about 8 or maybe 830.

Sprint always reports before the market opens. No company reports earnings during trading hours. It is either before or typically right after the close of a trading day.

Listening this morning and I'm sure these investors are going...excuses about market completion and tower upgrades again about churn?

 

EDIT:  Wasn't expecting the loss with Framily newness and the tablet adds.  Figured that would offset the issues with people leaving.

I wasn't expecting a total subscriber gain this quarter. Not at all. Not even with Framily. I think the losses will reduce until Q4 2014, when I believe they'll start adding again.

Let's hope or we'll be shopping for a new cell carrier...

Agree with your there.  They've still got some big holes in the network that need plugging first.   Its unfortunate they haven't taken a much more aggressive stance on them or even applied a band-aid to mitigate them at times.  Once they get things patched up the markets will start to turn around possibly within in 12-18 months with customer trends.  Hopefully they just keep bulldozing through it and continue to invest in the network, new sites, etc as it will pay off.

I recall reading that Dan said mid 2014 would be Sprints time to shine. Not sure if he pushed that timeframe back on this call but if thats not the case it wont be long. Edited by cavendano

So far in pre-market trading Sprint's stock is up about 3.5%. The market seems to be ok with sub losses as long as revenue and net losses are shrinking.

I would be interested to understand what the average sprint data usage of the churning customers looks like. My fear is that it is lower than sprints typical metric. Make no mistake, the price aggressions from sprints competitors is playing a role in the churn. Its not 100% network disturbance. I worry that as sprint churns its course through 2014, we are losing more profitable "light to moderate" data users and hanging on to the hogs. The time to bask in the glory of NV 1.0 is also gone. Its all Spark now and it cant wait 3 or 4 years.

 

Hoping we will hear something of Son's thoughts and strategies in the next few weeks

It's no secret what Sprint has to do. Finish 1900Mhz and 800Mhz and follow up with Spark where the other two deployments are finished. At the same time implement their alliance with the rural carriers.

I do believe before all of this is finished tmobile might be the number 3 carrier. Crazy just thinking about it. Sprint is not moving slow but they are just not moving fast enough. Competition is not going to just let them deploy Spark and do nothing.

True. But with vendors like Ericsson how long is this going to take? 1-2 years?

Finishing NV 1.0 and aggressively rolling out NV 2.0 is a must, but Sprint's success is also dependent on whether AT&T and Verizon lower their price per GB in an escalating price war.

    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
