Softbank looking at America Movil assets...

First it was Softbank looking into Mexicos' wireless carrier Grupo lusacell SA assets back in September and now according to the Wall Street Journal, Softbank is really looking into the assets of Mexico's America Movil SAB.

Masa really has a thing for Mexico lately.

 

Now if he succeeds in acquiring either one or both, what does that mean for deployment in the IBEZ? Granted it is Softbank we are talking about not Sprint, but I can't help to wonder what it would mean to the two (or more) wireless carriers in adjacent countries owned by one parent company in terms of coverage and frequencies?

It won't mean anything unless they get the company that has the SMR band in Mexico... (Which is neither of those two if my memory is correct).

NII Holdings is the company name you're looking for. Or Nextel International. They own, in addition to the SMR business in Mexico, a 15x15 block of AWS. They supposedly have deployed a network on it. They are in Chapter 11 right now. They are in trouble with falling revenue and arpu metrics. They need a sugar daddy real soon!

Does America Movil have any 2.5 GHz spectrum?

At this point, I believe not. Mexico took back the spectrum last year, and it has been reconfigured for bands 7 and 38. The transition to prepare it for auction should be completed in a couple of years.

Its time to put the Sprint into Sprint-Nextel.

    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.

    • Mike. I sent in more diags for wi-fi 6e yesterday where SCP shows channel = 0.  Thanks.
    • Added and modified them all! I took a trip through the L train tunnel between 1st Avenue and Bedford Avenue recently and found n41 live in the tunnel. It's 80 MHz, speeds were 250-300, and I didn't have time to check if n71 is there. Some stations speeds slow wayyyy down when a train pulls in now, even the ones with B2 at 15 or 20 MHz, so any upgrade is great sight to see.
