Smh. How about they stop trying to sneak the big uglies and do what everyone else is getting approved and deployed so easily??

I personally don't care but it seems others do. So how about a universal approach that won't be so difficult? Or start putting them up as flag poles. Smh

I have to tell you all I am near tears right now.  I am so stoked that Marcelo listened to us, directly.  I am sure he listened to all the feedback he heard.  But I believe S4GRU was influential in th

I'm still shocked and amazed how successful S4GRU has been in staying online, remaining relevant and keeping quality members and staff all with member donations from a relatively small pool. When we

Maybe he's outside of the city limits. He'll tweet as soon as he's back in town with a data connection.

Amen!! Put them things on existing poles and use them brown poles only when necessary.

Does Marcelo have more good numbers?

I think he's just poking fun at vzw cause they are opening more call centers.

 

I mean...no ones beating down the doors to join Sprint...though the network is indeed better but it's not quite where it should be after all these years. It's going to be interesting to see Verizon's numbers since they've had their unlimited offering out for a legit full quarter, T- Mobile and this get out the red promo( a desperate move marked as a promo) and Sprints 5 for $90 promo when this quarter is finished.

Marcelo's post appears to refer to Verizon's redesigned physical stores, not call centers.

 

Why is Verizon opening more call centers?

 

"Get out the red" promo?

Well its more so in one call center in charlotte. They are relocating to a larger space I think it's like 90k square feet and has additional room to grow like 100-300 new jobs. When clicking on the like (which I should have done). I like that new vzw store layout. Looks premium.

 

The T-Mobile get out the red is this promo targeted at Verizon customers who have iPhones and pixels. If you port to T-Mobile you can keep you iPhone or Pixel and T-Mobile will pay off your entire phone installment plan no matter how much you owe.

Ahhhh.... thanks for the info on that.

 

It's a nice layout. I agree. Sprint has some flagship locations which are pretty nice too. The Store at the Flatiron building in NYC is really nice. It also became a broadcasting location for Cheddar. (https://cheddar.com)

Marcelo has emphasized that Sprint Retail is an important Retail Channel, but at the same time, he's said that they're trying to move as much to digital as possible.

 

If you haven't already seen them, have a look at his most recent remarks on Retail:

The specific Q/A for retail is near the end.

I can't really tell but here's the link to the FCC document:

 

http://assets.fiercemarkets.net/public/007-Telecom/verizon-sprint-swap.pdf

 

Is that just the closing of the previous transactions between Sprint and Verizon or a new transaction?

It's recent.  I just haven't found the time to finish my write up on the USCC, ATT, and VZW spectrum swaps of april / early may.

I think when Marcelo sees the numbers not working too well at the physical retail level, but much better on the online level, hopefully he'll change his mind about spending so much money on physical retail, and really focus that online.

 

Even groceries are getting more and more online nowadays and likely moving to a model with huge warehouses where people don't go shopping as often, saving money on gas, the environment, etc. All the reasons we here for why this is being so heavily promoted.

 

The one difference I have with this physical retail vs online shopping deal, is instead of warehouses, I'd like to see a convergence between physical warehousing and shopping where people still have the choice to shop amidst huge mega buildings, or go up to a counter to shop via a screen, smartphone, or preselect items at home to pick them up. Sprint and other carriers could be right up front digitally assisting purchases while able to make sales all at the same space.

Very nice! I think Tarek said these swaps will net Sprint a couple hundred millions as they had done/received the previous year. 

"Couple hundred millions" what?   It won't give them new customers and it won't do anything for the bottom line.   All it does is allow them to use their spectrum more efficiently.

I'm glad to see the carriers at least working together on helping to widen spectrum for their services. Although, it would be good to know what the result totals of spectrum are now, not just what has been swapped/gained.

"Operating income is expected to be between $2 billion to $2.5 billion in fiscal year 2017. We expect non-cash gains from spectrum swaps in fiscal year 2017 similar to the $350 million we recognized in fiscal year 2016. As you know we exclude this non-cash spectrum gain from our adjusted EBITDA, but it does still impact our reported operating income just as it did last year"  source -- 1st Quarter call transcript.
