Sprint Q4 2014 earnings report

Recommended Posts

Date: Feb 5th, 2015.
Time: 1:30PM Eastern Time

I am interested in seeing how well the Cut Your Bill in Half promotion did. Also, I want to see how many pops they have covered in LTE (supposedly T-Mobile has 5million more. But I doubt it.)

It's said they earned close to 1 million customers, 400K being prepaid and the rest are tablets or other small profit devices.  I think 30K postpaid adds was the number.

 

I'm more interested in their update on the network goals and such for this year.  Haven't heard much about the specifics.

Didn't they give us some of the details from the quarter a few weeks ago? Maybe I'm just confused because I haven't had any caffeine today.

They put out unofficial subscriber numbers just after new years because Marcelo did a Q&A at a financial conference.  Tomorrow we'll get the official ones along with financial results.

Yeah, that's my point. The info will not deviate much from what was already released. Like subscriber numbers. Anything not released is what's open to speculation.

I was thinking this morning that are we not close to it, but couldn't remember the date. Actually thought it was next week. But as usual time flies by, so yeah it does seem that it wasn't too long ago.

no caffeine!!!! Sacrilege

 

As for the numbers, like Mario said, they made a small mention of some numbers early in  late Dec/earlyJan, but the numbers should be better. A quarterly report is usually done 2-3 weeks before distribution, so I would guess that the Jan mention would not include about a months worth of new data.

Strange $2.1 billion charge -- to improve future earnings?

Some of Sprint's notes are at a high interest rate of 14.75% from Clearwire

Sprint now covers 270 Million POPs with LTE, and 125 Million on 2.5Ghz.  Not bad.

I knew they wouldn't let T-Mobile hold that spot for long.

they just hit 100mil a month ago so this progress is excellent.

Is that 270 sprint native or is some the shentel, RRPR

I'm guessing native. If there was RRPP coverage on LTE, Sprint would make a huge deal of that.

What do you mean by 40% of this year?

Do you mean the 40% of people left to cover will be accomplished this year

 FDD is fixed, that is evenly divided.  Except when doing video conferencing and the like, it is underutilized on the uplink side. TDD is downlink oriented.

If they'd let me add another line to my ED 1500, I'd really love Sprint even more. :P

    • Sorry, I wasn't clear, the Evergreen Hospital MM setup I already located a while ago. The eNBs for those were: B6BD7, B6BD9, B6BDB. I meant for the cluster of MM which I can't locate in Kirkland. Just like Totem Lake and the John Muir school, there are three MM nearby with their eNB separated by 2 digits and one reports as an MM/SC. As expected, SE03XC353 tends to overwhelm them in most normal areas, making location more difficult. It seems that their job is to fill in the "shadows" for SE03XC353. My guess is all three are located at the aforementioned Clear site in Kirkland, but I am not 100% certain on that yet. I will drive around to see if I can collect better data on CellMapper. As an aside, it seems like it is common in a cluster of three for one of them to report as an MM/SC on SignalCheck. Even the one I found which had the last eNB off by one, instead of two, still had one of them as an MM/SC. 
    • Yes, Sprint was required by the US government to decommission all Huawei equipment due to security concerns.  Sprint has historically had issues with the property owner of that Motel 6. It was one of the last sites upgraded to LTE, and it will probably be one of the last sites upgraded to triband.  That permit is for the Clear site by Kirkland marina. There is a mini-macro setup on the roof of Evergreen Hospital by Totem Lake.

    • That makes sense, I said "loves" strictly because I have encountered so many of them near me. I didn't know about the Huawei aspect of things. They are very well located normally, providing coverage for weak spots from the "main" tower.   As for Evergreen, that would make sense, it's a high location in what has become a VERY busy area. I am guessing that is why the tower over on the Motel 6 nearby has not been upgraded. Also, that is good to know about all of the MM clusters. That combined with this permit makes me think that I am correct on the location. The only thing I need to determine if all three eNB are at the same site.
