I'm so glad that he is using his twitter account for Sprint!

 

As long as he uses it to not be a D-Bag like a certain Magenta tool...but to help keep customers and potential customers in the know....Tweet to your hearts content!

There is a way to troll the other guys without being a D-Bag...I hope he does do *some* magenta trolling!

It happens tot he best of us.

Which is why I hate Tapatalk. The only good thing about it is that it reduces the screenshots to a small size, unlike what shows up on a desktop (godzilla size). Other than that, its a pain. Anyway, let me get back on topic.

 

so... going back a few threads/pages, I don't recall anyone answering the question about "if the Sprint stores are closing at lets say 7PM, does that mean in each timezone or 7 Eastern, 8 Central, 9 Mountian, 10 Pacific."

I'd assume if its 6-6pm at each time zone, its not really that BIG of a change maybe?  Where as if Sprint wanted to inform all people at once it would be time zone independent no?

Whos' local time the question now becomes.  :D

My thinking as well. Close stores in NYC at 6PM, it is still 2PM LA.

Which means that someone leaks the info NY Time and the others will know before the door even closes for training. (I'm not even counting Hawaii in this scenario which is another 6 hour difference).

Bad news i think they are pushing back the meetings.

Ruh Roh....By hours or days? LOL....Although, it may be a good thing. Don't want to rush into something if it's not ready...

I have a feeling they want to announce it tomorrow then train us or somethibg

Sounds interesting. They may not want to take away from what they are announcing tomorrow. Maybe they have more planned than what we have all thought.

Tomorrow is that "Take the Edge Off" announcement right?  Maybe they just want to piggy back on that and make a big phone and plan announcement in one?

I think it's more than that. Maybe even an announcement that Sprint will support wifi calling on iOS 8 too? (Wishful thinking)

iOS8 wifi calling is almost a guarantee I think. No reason not to support that, especially once iOS8 is official.

Probably won't be announced tomorrow, but I would think it's coming.  Wifi calling is built into ios 8 and they're adding it to the flagship phones. (Minus the G2 which they've apparently forgotten about. Grr.)

Once the G3 came out....the G2 became an afterthought...

I also want to believe that it's a guarantee, but an official announcement would add to the excitement: new plans, new phones, new features, new (and expanding) markets with Spark (or LTE in general), represents a new Sprint.

This will be the list of their announcements. I know that Marcelo will not just let this be "just another announcement." If iOS 8 does not included wifi calling, I will curl up and die.

Please Please Please!!

 

I mean, I have pretty good Voice coverage at my house, but I hate not being able to use all the features on my iPhone. Especially new features!

I can't see anything about about competing devices announced tomorrow. This was originally obviously about Sharp bringing their first North American phone exclusively to Sprint. It would be bad form to take anything away from Sharp tomorrow. Obviously, the device itself is going to get somewhat overshadowed tomorrow if they announce new plans as expected, but that is a different situation (New CEO out in Public for the first time it is to be expected).

    • This site is built but not live. eNB 41150 is still live. eNB 41188 is decommissioned but as far as I can tell the site at 200 West 55th is not built yet. This site is live gNB 1346302. This site is live gNB 1092074 This site is live gNB 1371671 This site is live gNB 1371860 — — — — — Sprint eNB 6156 -> T-Mobile gNB 1349260 Sprint eNB Unknown -> T-Mobile gNB 1325016 — — — — — Bonus T-Mobile 5G small cell, gNB 1348688 in Queens:  
    • FTTH JVs are city by city as well, so it's not going to really be sector by sector. It sounds like TMo wants to be able to sell everyone home broadband, but if that requires building additional infrastructure that infra will take the form of FTTH builds rather than mobile densification. Which involves tradeoffs, but the product is better than e.g. what AT&T is doing for me right now, which is offering only Internet Air in an area where they have 100/20 DSL available but not (yet) fiber.
    • Hopefully they do not wait until these sectors get so overloaded that they start getting nasty reviews and people abandon them. Getting fiber coverage to the area of a overloaded sector can take a year or more. I also question if this can all be managed.  Lots of sectors all over the country can get congested fairly quick.  Lots of work and money to get fiber installed and there goes the profitability on the venture.
    • MoffetNathanson Conference This is a conference where the CFO talks telecom financial analysts so obviously it takes a return on investment approach.  Broadly T-Mobile divides there world into top 100 markets (60%) and small town/rural (40%). They ultimately want to have at least 1/3 market share in rural. They also look at demographics like 50+ and Hispanic.  Reputation is now starting to help them with CIOs.  Did mention c-band buildout beginning in major cities as well as continued band migration to 5g. IMO they may become more aggressive at offering 5g phones to LTE holdover and 5g users without VoNR at a future date. mmWave not discussed. Price increases not discussed iirc. Did mention spectrum purchases from speculators. $9 billion all goes through same ROI process. FWA is down to hexagonal patterns by sector of fallow spectrum. Fiber JVs will go where sectors are overloaded.
    • I am lucky to be served by an excellent fiber ISP and that is the only reason I haven't tried TMOs FWA. Once you go fiber, it is REALLY hard to go back. The choice of sub-10ms ping times is a very artificial bucket, FWA will seldom get much below 10ms ping times but fiber regularly gets me 1-3ms ping times. Basically, at around those times, the speed of light and the distance you are from the server become the limiting factors. As an aside, my internet provider, ZiplyFiber, has been awesome. They peer like crazy at all the major IX in the area and, as a result, you end up with what essentially amounts to direct fiber connections to the vast majority of major data sources. While it isn't sexy, it makes my 1Gb/1Gb connection load pages significantly faster than my works 10Gb/10Gb connection. On the "sexy" side, they are also fastest ISP in the nation. They offer up to 50Gb/50Gb via a direct fiber connection to the router, albeit for an eye watering $900/mo.
