Doesn't matter now. At&t is allowed to get Time Warner with no conditions.  That Tmobile merger is basically guaranteed at this point.


Sort of.

But ATT and Time warner isn’t like for like.

I know this thread covers a lot of topics... but let's at least keep the focus on wireless companies and the like. That doesn't really have any place in this thread.

Sprint is ending its $15 unlimited plan promo this week

So it seems that Sprint is ending this promotion this week and according to them its because of high demand. Say what?

Can someone explain to me this reasoning? If the purpose was to bring in new customers to the network and the promo is successfully doing that due to its high demand, why kill it? Things that make you go hmmmm.

TS out

At the high demand of course we don't know the number .. the percent of people that get this plan .. will more then likely leave once the promotion is up

Ok sure.  Even though Spring has lowered their prices again isn’t that going to hurt sprint in the long run?

I'm not sure what you're talking about right now. That doesn't have anything to do with my post you quoted.

Id assume this promotion had a purpose... Either add new subs at any cost. Or see if that lever would sway clients from XYZ carrier. If I was abetting person, it's the latter.

Then again it could've just been a way to stay in the news.

I'm not an expert in this kind of thing, but more customers is generally a good thing. And it's only a promo price, they won't get that price forever.

Each user has a cost to the company for them being a customer. It use to be called cash cost per user but I am not sure what they are calling it now. More customers are not always better if they cost you more to have than they pay in.

Right now I'm just getting use to the LG G7 right now, liking it so far, especially the wide angle lens.

Boost has a better deal at a better price. Music doesn’t count toward the cap. I don’t know if the plan is unlimited or not.

Also for Boost, only Sprint native coverage for data (no extended coverage).

Not so fast. Roaming voice coverage is included. There are alot of states that dont offer LTE roaming and only voice so to most I dont think this is a valid argument.

Sorry.  I just updated my reply.  For me, I need extended data when I go see my parents.

I'm not trying to turn this into a rant or anything but I feel like Sprint puts the postpaid customer last now and days. No loyalty what so ever unless your a new customer. Other carriers don't do this.

No Global roaming, no Hulu and other small perks like AAA etc, lower priority on network, no device financing.

You are getting more for you money feature wise with Boost. Hulu is a perk but not nothing overly special. I'd take the taxes and fees being included in my plan over Hulu. That money I would save could go towards Hulu.

Not true boost mobile in fact does offer device financing now. Low priority is not valid as I have never heard of anyone getting deprioritized and as more and more b41 come online that is going to become very rare. Also global roaming is only $10 more per month and since taxes and fees are included it's still cheaper than postpaid. I would know I pay $25 a month in taxes and fees from Sprint.

    • Sprint still hasn't finished El Paso?!? I know there are a few sites that haven't been touched in West Texas (SW of Monahans and between Van Horn and Fort Stockton), but if this site is in the immediate El Paso area, then this is just....😐.
    • Sure thing, let us know if you need help troubleshooting. They don't make a decent off the shelf model, and probably won't until whatever 5g is rolls out in 202?. These are probably the most comparative to off the shelf in price and function.

      Like building anything, do some reading, ask some questions and it should go pretty smooth.

      Sometimes they need a reset or a firmware upgrade, but that is something you will not get out of Netgear often; i.e. I use an unlocked AT&T branded mr1100 nighthawk. It has received a couple updates, but they don't do much to add functionality. It still camps on low bands, band selection or combinations are non existent, and it has a real fussy ethernet port. Cost me 200 bucks. I put together a 3 carrier capable modem and router for 249 and it does all of these things, and does not require carrier support for updates.

      I get regular firmware updates for both LTE modems(Telit, Sierra Wireless) and the routers(openWRT, ROOTer, modem manager). I am mesh networking a couple right now to boot. 
    • using a GS9 in London now. Spent the $25 for a week of high speed data. 5 days in and I'm almost at 2GB so for high data usage its better to go this way than keep open world. The main network for Sprint is O2. I think I connected to Vodafone once so far. I do have problems connecting once in a while and dropping to HSPA. Speeds are slow but I think this is due to not having all the bands on the GS9 and not having CA for the Bands I have. Haven't gone past 15Mbps download.    I also brought my Essential phone and put an EE sim card in. they are known as the biggest and fastest LTE network. They use band 7 which is also 2600mhz and when i connect to that and/or CA I've seen speed over 100mbps. on the glaxy on O2 I haven't seen faster than 15mbps
    • Oh I didn't know. But it's definitely Alcatel-Lucent in Boston. Also I think he's talking about in NYC, another Nokia/ALu market.
