Sprints 'Happy Connecting' Event

Recommended Posts

I think they are going to announce the "completion" of network vision. Remember sprint announced network vision and lte will be deployed to 250 million by mid year. June 23 is technically mid year.

 

 

In other words I'm not expecting anything new or surprising

Hd voice and the completion of the 3g build would be my guess.

 

That.

 

Plus; voice improvements on 800, a mention of LTE live on 2/3rds of NV 1.0 site covering a pop. of x#, Spark coverage already for y#,and NV 2.0 is rolling out (as planned?).

Yeah I saw this earlier today but the most amusing part to me is the fact that, predictably, the CNET comments are laden with anti Sprint propaganda/rampant ranting. Honestly... there aren't many areas untouched by at least nv 1.0 so..why are they hating so very hard? Is there any validity to their diarrhea-at-the-mouth word vomit?

Will the "Happy Connecting" event include a "happy ending"?

A press event to announce NV "completion" would be a terrible idea. For current customers and potential new customers that aren't in completed areas it would be very irritating to see a grand announcement while they still have not seen the NV love.

That cost extra....

 

Ah, geez, is this the "4G fee" again?  I can just see it now.  I will be paying the extra $10 and told I will get a happy ending this summer.  But next year, I will still be waiting.

 

You did get the fractured speech pattern right, though.  "You want happy ending?  That cost extra.  Me love you long time."

Prior to thr announcing of the spotify relationship, some thought that would be about HD voice. Perhaps hd voice across majority of network and more cities "launched" since launch and completion have nothing in common. And of course, the promise of a happy ending lol

Screw 'em. I'll boot 'em in the ass on the way out the door if they want to leave Sprint. They would complain no matter what...Magenta's poor coverage, Big Red's pricing, Deathstars' megalomania. Quite humorous if you ask me. They might be the first ones to crawl back to Sprint in a year when their perfect world is an unrealized fantasy. My coworker left AT&T for T-Mobile a month ago. I tried to convince her to sign up with Sprint (I get magnificent CDMA1x 800 voice coverage deep inside the building and LTE from the ground floor up). She had no service with AT&T. She still has no service with T-Mobile. Smack dab in the middle of the Sunset Strip. The local tower is even Sprint/T-Mobile shared. Go figure.

I agree, which reminds me of this old pic.

I also feel that most will return as well. anyway, lets get back to the topic at hand.

Anyone else have ideas of what it can be about. The HD Voice seems to be the most logical one so far.

If the "T" in T-Mobile stands for "taco," I would not mind a "merger" with the Pink Taco.

I have a feeling we may hear something about the merger. They may "officially" announce it to the public. I also think they will give performance numbers of their network and where they are on the upgrade process.

Slightly off topic, but I had the same experience when I tried my t-mobile prepaid SIM in the N5 while in my basement. T-mobile was nonexistent as I expect, but sprint was able to maintain 1x 1900 connection. Sprint and t-mobile share the same tower for the one that services my home.

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
