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.

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

    • Hey folks, I haven't been around here in a long time. I guess I just got distracted by other things, especially after Sprint 4G LTE became commonly available for me.   Then, in February of 2018, I defected from Sprint to T-Mobile. That move allowed me to get on the "T-Mobile ONE 55+" plan, (yeah, I'm an old geezer) and at the time, grab a limited time offer add-on called "ONE Plus International" that adds a lot of features, but most importantly "UNLIMITED 4G LTE Hotspot" on a phone.   The move was both for the service and price. I was paying Sprint $179 for service on one phone, and one USB 3G modem. The modem was what kept me with Sprint for so long. I bought it in 2007, when mobile data was just starting to catch on in popularity. Everyone else had low data caps and high overage charges at the time, but, Sprint was slow to jump on that bandwagon. They even had an ad campaign at the time, something like: "Use all the data you want, have fun"! I bought the modem outright, and paid $59.99/mo for unlimited 3G data. As an over the road truck driver, at the time, that was the same price I paid Comcast for home Internet, that was hardly home to use. I canceled Comcast, and that USB thing became my only non-phone Internet connection.   The bad part of that was, shortly after I got that deal, Sprint discontinued that plan, and I was stuck. If I made ANY changes to that line/device, I would lose that plan, and have to take whatever offers were current. I couldn't activate any new device on the data account. So I milked that device and plan for just over 11 years, until Feb. 2018. After so long, the device was struggling, and the data was just damn slow.   After my upgrade to T-Mobile, I have my main phone, (currently a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition), an Aristo 2 Plus, used mostly as a hotspot, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10" with unlimited 4G LTE, all for $132.41. About $45 a month less than what I gave Sprint, and I have one extra device, and all with much faster data.   On Sprint, my average speed was usually less than 15/2, on T-Mobile I get over 100 down and around 40 up.   Of course with this arrangement, one day I will find myself in a similar situation, a line stuck on old tech, even though I CAN upgrade my T-Mobile device, the data add-on specifically says "4G LTE data", So I hope that sticks around for a while as 5G becomes a thing. If I make any changes on that line, I will lose that add-on.           Sorry for all the rambling, I just looked at all the stuff I just typed, and can't bring myself to delete all that work. I guess I just got nostalgic when Facebook on Tuesday showed me a memory post from 2013, the pics are below. My first cell phone was a Nextel, that's how I wound up on Sprint, after that merger. It was 7 years ago already, that Sprint shut off Nextel. Now, Sprint is about to be shut off by T-Mobile. Everything changes. You can't see the date on the pic with "NO SIGNAL", those old Nextel phones didn't even have a proper clock, it just displayed what the network sent it, so, no signal, no clock. How far we have come.   Anyway, I guess with the merger, I'm back in the family, so here I am looking to learn about a new rollout, this time 5G on 2.5 GHz, specifically in the West Michigan area.   Sent from my HD1925 using Tapatalk

    • Okay, I have now ordered the A71 to replace my G7 based on your assurance.
    • I did not know how long it took to go from dev to public but i have the dev profile on this phone and public profile on my ipad, and of course i expect my phone will get the next update and there are a few minor glitches which i have submitted so hope to see them addressed...mostly app weirdness as I expect some apps will have to get some updates to work properly with ios 14+
